Erdogan slams Netanyahu as 'butcher of Gaza'

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan described on Monday Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as the "master butcher" of Gaza whose expansionist plans have been revealed through his country's campaign in the strip against Hamas.

Speaking at the Standing Committee for Economic and Commercial Cooperation's (COMCEC) summit in Istanbul, Erdogan insisted that Gaza is a "Palestinian territory. Gaza belongs to the Palestinians, and it will remain so forever." He also warned against what he described as the rise of Islamophobia in the West.

Moreover, Erdogan expressed Ankara's readiness to act as a mediator and warrantor in potential future peace negotiations between Israel and Palestine.
