Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has compared Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Adolf Hitler.

Mr Erdogan said Israel’s bombing campaign against Gaza is comparable to the persecution of Jewish people by the Nazis.

Israel’s PM said his Turkish counterpart is “the last person who can preach morality” to Israel – accusing him of committing genocide against Kurdish people in Turkey.

He also accused Erdogan of holding the world record for imprisoning journalists who oppose his rule.

While it supports a two-state solution to the conflict, Turkey has called for Israeli leaders to be tried in international courts.
