Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said that the “Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was the main one to blame for Iran's first-ever direct attack on the Israeli Occupation.

"The main one responsible for the tension that gripped our hearts on the evening of April 13 is Netanyahu and his bloody administration", Erdoğan said, in televised remarks made Tuesday following a cabinet meeting.

"Israel is trying to provoke a regional conflict, and its attack on Iran's embassy in Damascus was the last drop," he added.
