Ankara/Istanbul - Turkey on Monday recalled its ambassador to Israel to protest an early morning raid on a banned relief convoy that left at least 10 dead, a senior Turkish official said.
Additionally, Turkey had cancelled three military agreements with Israel, said Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc in Ankara.
'We will use all the possibilities available under international law to make Israel answerable,' said Arinc. He said Israel had attacked and abused civilians before the eyes of the whole world and compared the actions of the Israeli commandos to pirates.
Members of the Israeli navy stormed the convoy of six ships Monday morning after reportedly warning organisers that they would not be allowed to bring supplies to the Gaza Strip without going through an approved border crossing
