Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Tuesday said that Israel should take responsibility for the deaths of the nine Turkish citizens who were killed on the Mavi Marmara
, Israel Radio reported.
Davutoglu's comments came as a response to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's testimony before the Turkel Committee, in which he said that Turkey did not make any efforts to stop the Mavi Marmara
and should be investigated. The Turkish foreign minister expressed his confidence in the UN panel which will investigate the ship, and said that the panel will surely find those who are responsible for the deaths.
