Turkey's Erdogan slams Netanyahu, calls Israel an 'apartheid state'

On Tuesday, hundreds of people in Tel Aviv marched and blocked traffic after Israeli forces fired on largely unarmed Palestinian protesters in Gaza on Monday, killing around 60 people and injuring hundreds more.

In a response statement, Netanyahu said that "Erdoğan is among Hamas's biggest supporters and there is no doubt that he well understands terrorism and slaughter".

At least 60 people were killed and more than 2,000 injured, Gaza officials said.

The chairperson reiterated the solidarity of the AU with the Palestinian people in their legitimate quest for an independent and sovereign State with East Jerusalem as its capital.

China called on Israel to exercise restraint.

United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville said Israel had a right to defend its borders according to global law, but lethal force must only be used a last resort, and was not justified by Palestinians approaching the Gaza fence.
