Turkish President Abdullah Gül told pan-Arab Al-Arabiya Thursday that Turkey was planning on heading to the International Criminal Court to determine the legality of the blockade on the Gaza Strip and that Ankara rejected the UN-backed Palmer report which legitimized the IDF blockade.

Gul also denied that Turkey singled out Israeli travelers at the Istanbul Ataturk Airport, and said that the current deterioration in relations between Ankara and Jerusalem was not being directed at "individuals."
