ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday sharply criticized Israel for the "bloody massacre" that killed nine people on a Gaza-bound aid vessel and warned Tuesday that no one should test Turkey's diplomatic patience.
Erdogan told lawmakers in the Parliament that the IDF action was an attack "on international law, the conscience of humanity and world peace."
"This bloody massacre by Israel on ships that were taking humanitarian aid to Gaza deserves every kind of curse," he said, demanding that Israel immediately halt its "inhumane" blockade of Gaza.
