Erdogan tweeted back that Netanyahu was the leader of "an apartheid state that has occupied a defenseless people's lands for 60+ years in violation of United Nations resolutions", adding that he was criticising Turkey to deflect attention.

Mr Erdogan said "history would judge" both Israel and the USA for the deaths of at least 58 people in protests prompted by the opening of America's embassy in Jerusalem.

Furthermore, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) will hold an emergency meeting in Istanbul regarding Palestine on May 18.

Erdogan regards himself as a champion of the Palestinian cause and previous year hosted an OIC summit in Istanbul to denounce US President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
