BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – The war of words has been reignited between the Turkish and Israeli leaders, following Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s remarks about Israel’s new nation-state law.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fired back at Erdogan, claiming that he has committed crimes against his own people, Kurds, and Syrians.

“Erdogan slaughters Syrian and Kurds and jails his own citizens,” Netanyahu stated, as quoted by Haaretz correspondent Noa Landau.

“The fact that he attacks the nation-state law is the biggest compliment. Turkey under Erdogan is a dark dictatorship while Israel has equal rights to all before and after this law,” Netanyahu added.

Netanyahu’s comments come after Erdogan called Israel the “most fascist and racist” country in the world.

“Israel has shown it is a terrorist state by attacking Palestinians with tanks and artillery,” he said in a speech to ruling AK Party lawmakers.

WOW, the Turks are about to lose out big time, this is more than just a war of words, this is a precursor to something big happening in Idlib, I have a funny feeling about this new spat and what it’s really over.
