The Times of Israel reports: “Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned Israel on Wednesday that Israel would ‘pay a very heavy price’ if it attempted to eliminate Hamas members in Turkey.
Erdogan’s warning came several days after recordings were revealed of the head of Israel’s Shin Bet security agency saying Jerusalem is determined to kill leaders of the Palestinian terror group ‘in every location’ around the world, including ‘in Lebanon, in Turkey, in Qatar.’
Following the publication of the recordings, Ankara warned Israel on Monday that there would be serious consequences if Hamas members were assassinated on Turkish soil, a threat that Erdogan underscored on Wednesday.
‘They do not know the Turks. They don’t know us… If they commit such a mistake, they should know that they will pay a very heavy price for it,’ he said ahead of his departure from Qatar, where he had been conducting high-level talks.
‘If they dare to take such a step against Turkey and the Turks, they will be condemned to pay the price, never to be able to stand up again,’ he added…”
