Turkish premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel of "terrorizing the region" with its bombardment of Gaza and likened an Israeli politician to Hitler in a broadside likely to further strain fragile relations between the two countries.Israel Tuesday resumed its assault on Gaza, six hours after an Egyptian-proposed cease-fire failed to halt the firing of rockets by Palestinian militants into Israeli territory.At least 184 Palestinians, many of them civilians, have been killed since operations by the Israeli military began a week ago.Erdogan also criticized an Israeli member of parliament, apparently Ayelet Shaked of the ultranationalist Jewish Home party.Erdogan's remarks are likely to further complicate relations between the two countries, which reached a nadir in 2010, when Israeli commandos stormed the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara, which was part of an aid flotilla challenging the Jewish State's naval blockade of the Gaza Strip.Earlier this year Erdogan hinted that the two sides were on the brink of a deal.
