In light of the crisis in relations between Israel and Turkey, Turkish Foreign Minister Balut Chavashulu called for the establishment of an independent commission of inquiry to prepare a report on the killing of Palestinian demonstrators in Gaza.

"Israel must stand [for] international law," Balut said according to Hebrew media reports.

"In the pursuit of cheap politics, [the Israelis] are trying to turn themselves into a victim," he continued.
