Al-Qaida's second-in-command urged Turks to force their government to break ties with Israel and stop killing Muslims in Afghanistan in an audio message posted on a militant website Sunday.

In a 20 minutes Arabic audio message posted Sunday on a militant Web site, Ayman al-Zawahri said the Turkish government was showing sympathy to Palestinians with aid shipments on one hand, while it cooperated with the Israel military on the other.

He expressed deep regret for the killing of nine Turkish activists by Israeli commandos when their aid ship tried to break the blockade of Gaza.

He added that the United States, Israel and the treacherous Muslim governments share in the blame for the siege of Gaza.

In recent years, al-Qaida has expanded its messages beyond just Arab world to Muslims elsewhere.
