The Turkish prime minister said on Tuesday that Israel would face a reciprocal stance from Turkey if it continued to assume any hostile act against Turkey.

Turkey's Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters that noted that Turkey has tolerated the Israeli people for ages, and any hostile act will find its response.

Erdogan's remarks came after Israeli Foreign Ministry expressed uneasiness over a popular Turkish TV series, "Kurtlar Vadisi" (The Valley of the Wolves), through diplomatic channels.

Premier Erdogan said Turkey had always showed tolerance to the Israeli people and the Jews.

Erdogan referred to recent statement of the Turkish Foreign Ministry and said he did not want to elaborate on this matter too much.

"That Israel has a coalition government in office right now does not bind Turkey, it is their domestic problem," he said.

Erdogan also said that Turkey could not tolerate a statement just because it had been made by a member of an extreme political party.
