"You're an occupier. You're there on that land as an occupier. Because you are a terror state", Erdogan told the ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party Congress in the southern Adana province. "The US must play a more positive role in ending the Gaza blockade and helping Palestinians and Israelis build a future that works for all", he added.

"The most moral army in the world won't be lectured about morality by someone who has been bombing civilian populations indiscriminately for years", Netanyahu said in a Facebook post.

"Israel has carried out a massacre in Gaza and Netanyahu is a terrorist".

Following Netanyahu's retaliation, Erdogan accused the Israeli prime minister of being "a terrorist".

We will continue to support our brothers and sisters in Palestine", he said.
