CAIRO, (AP) – The Turkish prime minister has called on Israelis to remove their foreign minister in a interview with the Arabic news channel Jazeera.

Prime Minister Recep Erdogan called the outspoken Israeli minister “a problem at the head of Israel” in an interview broadcast Wednesday night.

He said Israelis had the duty to “rid themselves” of Avigdor Lieberman or risk him causing them more problems in the future.

Relations between the two countries hit an all-time low in May, when Israeli naval commandos killed nine activists from Turkey on board a Gaza-bound ship that tried to breach Israel’s naval blockade.

Turkey withdrew its ambassador from Tel Aviv and Turkish leaders denounced Israel repeatedly over the raid.
