Turkish President Abdullah Gul on Friday said that the sanctions against Israel announced by Ankara for Jerusalem's refusal to apologize for the Mavi Marmara raid are "initial steps" which may be followed by additional measures, Today's Zaman reported.

"It seems they [Israel] have not been able to comprehend Turkey's determination to show that the rights of our citizens will be protected to the end and the things that happened have not been forgotten,” Gül stated.

“The steps we have announced today are the initial measures. Others may follow, depending on Israel's attitude and the course of events in the future.” The president also called on the “allies of Israel” to warn the country that “in order to reach peace and stability in the region, there are steps Israel needs to take.”
