Hamas on Friday issued a statement supporting Turkey's downgrading of ties with Israel in response to Jerusalem's refusal to apologize for the raid of the Mavi Marmara.

"Hamas movement welcomes the Turkish step and the dismissal of the Israeli ambassador in Turkey and sees it as a natural response to the Israeli crime committed against the Freedom flotilla and the occupation's insistence to continue its blockade on Gaza," Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said.
