Days after Turkey ordered Israeli ambassador over the killings of Palestinians near Israeli border fence in Gaza, son of Israeli prime minister Benjamin Nethanyahu has posted a controversial image on his Instagram page.
According to reports by the Sputnik agency on Thursday, Yair Netanyahu took to his Instagram account to post a controversial picture depicting a morphed Turkish national flag. In the image, the crescent replaced the letter "c" in the word 'f*ck'.
According to the Hamas-led Healthy Ministry in Gaza, 62 Palestinians were killed and more than 2,700 others were injured in clashes with Israeli troops.
Turkey expelled Israeli Ambassador Eitan Na'eh on Tuesday and recalled its ambassadors from Tel Aviv and Washington.
Israel responded in kind, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saying Erdogan "well understands terrorism and slaughter" and should not preach to Israel over military ethics.
Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that associates of the prime minister has said "Yair Netanyahu is a private person, as is his Instagram account". Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan also slammed Netanyahu, calling him "the PM of an apartheid state", and claiming he has "the blood of Palestinians on his hands".
His account appears to have been deleted, but screenshots of the offensive message have been circulated by local media outlets.
In September he was forced to delete a meme from his Facebook profile which was described as anti-Semitic and an appreciation to white supremacy.
Last year Yair Netanyahu was in hot water for posting a cartoon on Facebook with references to Jewish billionaire and philanthropist George Soros, the Illuminati and some sort of lizard creature. Former Klu Klux Klan leader David Duke tweeted his approval, writing, "Welcome to the club, Yair - absolutely unbelievable, wow, just wow".
In January he was also caught on tape outside a Tel Aviv strip club drunkenly boasting about his powerful father and making derogatory comments about women.
