Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan addresses the supporters of his ruling Justice and Development Party, AKP, during a rally in Istanbul, on March 12, 2019, ahead of local elections scheduled for March 31, 2019.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a "thief" and a "tyrant" in their latest spat.

The dispute comes after Erdogan's spokesman denounced Netanyahu as a racist. Netanyahu then struck back calling Erdogan a dictator and criticizing the country for imprisoning journalists, miamiherald.com reported.

Speaking at an election campaign rally on Wednesday, Erdogan addressed Netanyahu as "the thief who heads Israel" in reference to corruption allegations against him.

Erdogan continued, "You are a tyrant. You are a tyrant who slaughters seven-year-old Palestinian kids."
