Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday that Israel was carrying out "terrorist acts" in its bombardment of Gaza:

Those who associate Islam with terrorism close their eyes
in the face of mass killing of Muslims, turn their heads from
the massacre of children in Gaza," Erdogan told a conference of
the Eurasian Islamic Council in Istanbul.
"For this reason, I say that Israel is a terrorist state,
and its acts are terrorist acts."
