zionist Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s son, Yair, posted a controversial picture which read “F**k Turkey”, amid the diplomatic row between the two countries over massacre in the Gaza Strip.
Yair Netanyahu posted an image of the text that looked like the Turkish flag, which is red with a white star and crescent, to his Instagram story. In his image, the crescent replaced the letter ‘c’ in the word ‘f*ck’, Middle East News reported.
Responding to the post, Israeli PM’s inner circle announced that there was hardly anything unusual about the post, since “Yair Netanyahu is a private person, as is his Instagram account”.
The post comes amid a raging diplomatic row between Ankara and Tel Aviv.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday sent a “reminder” to Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, stressing that Hamas is not a terrorist organization, as the Turkish government has expelled the Israeli ambassador to Ankara and consul general in Istanbul in protest against Tel Aviv regime’s killing of over 60 unarmed Palestinians along Gaza border.
“Reminder to Netanyahu: Hamas is not a terrorist organization and Palestinians are not terrorists. It is a resistance movement that defends the Palestinian homeland against an occupying power,” Erdogan wrote on his official Twitter account.
“The world stands in solidarity with the people of Palestine against their oppressors,” the Turkish leader added.
The Turkish President had accused the Israeli PM of having the “blood of Palestinians on his hands” following indiscriminate killings by Israeli forces in the besieged Gaza Strip.
“Netanyahu is the PM of an apartheid state that has occupied a defenseless people’s lands for 60+ yrs in violation of UN resolutions,” Erdogan tweeted.
The Israeli Prime Minister hit back, saying that “a man whose hands are stained with the blood of countless Kurdish citizens in Turkey and Syria is the last person to preach to us about combat ethics”.
Ankara and Tel Aviv have also expelled their envoys amid growing tensions between the two sides over the killing of dozens of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip at the hands of the Tel Aviv regime’s forces.
Ankara on Wednesday told Israel’s consul general in Istanbul Yosef Levi Sfari to leave the country “for a while”, following indiscriminate violence and killings by Israeli soldiers along the Gaza border.
Turkey’s consul general in Jerusalem was summoned by the Israeli Foreign Ministry on Tuesday and also asked to leave the country for an indefinite period of time.
Also, a Turkish Foreign Ministry source said on Tuesday that Israeli Ambassador to Ankara Eitan Naeh had been told that it would be “appropriate” if he returned to the occupied territories “for some time”.
Hours later, Israel’s Ministry for Foreign Affairs said that Turkish Consul General in Jerusalem al-Quds Husnu Gurcan Turkoglu had been summoned and told to return to Turkey “for consultations for a period of time”.
Ankara had already recalled its ambassadors in Tel Aviv and Washington as it accused the United States of sharing responsibility with Israel for the massacre of Palestinians along the Gaza border.
Tens of thousands of Palestinians launched the Great March of Return in the besieged Gaza Strip on Monday to demand their right of return to their villages and towns they were forcibly displaced.
The Gaza Health Ministry reported on Monday that the death toll of the Palestinians matyred by Israeli fire in Gaza border clashes has risen to 63, while more than 2,700 people, including children, women and journalists, have been injured by Tel Aviv regime’s forces who are positioned along the fence.
