And yet Erdogan has been a staunch ally of the Syrian rebels trying to topple the regime Israel bombed.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan slammed Israel on Sunday over its alleged airstrike in Syria.
“Anything could happen in the region,” Erdogan said. “Those who treated the Israeli government like a spoiled child should know that history will not forgive Israel’s state structure.”
The alleged Israeli strike, he said, “is unacceptable to us … It is against every international law.”
Asked about Iran’s strong reaction to Israeli following the alleged attack on Syrian targets, Erdogan told reporters that Iran should first of all “reconsider its attitude against Syria.
“What is Iran doing about Syria? While considering the acts of Israel, Iran at the same time needs to allow for common steps to be taken in the region.”
On Saturday, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu urged Damascus to retaliate following the alleged Israeli attack.
