Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan Condemns Israel’s Air Strike in Syria

by Colonel on February 4, 2013

“Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused Israel of waging “state terrorism” as he condemned the air strike on Syria as an unacceptable violation of international law.

“Those who have been treating Israel like a spoilt child should expect anything from them, at any time,” said Erdogan on Sunday.

Erdogan, a harsh critic of the Jewish state, was speaking after Israel’s outgoing Defence Minister Ehud Barak implicitly confirmed that it had staged Wednesday’s bombing raid which Damascus said targeted a military complex near the capital.

“We cannot regard a violation of air space as acceptable. What Israel does is completely against international law… it is beyond condemnation,” Erdogan said.

“I am worried that in a situation like this, any scenario can play out in the future.”
