Turkey has threatened to expel Israel's ambassador to Ankara if Jerusalem does not apologize for the the raid on the Mavi Marmara in which nine Turks were killed by IDF commandos, Channel 2 reported on Thursday.

The report came after Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu warned that if Israel did not apologize for the incident by the time the UN report on the raid is released, presumably on Friday, Turkey will impose sanctions on Israel. Davutoglu's comments came in an interview with the Turkish newspapers Today's Zaman and Hurriyet.

The Channel 2 report added that envoy to Turkey, Gabby Levy, is currently in Israel on vacation.
