The UN Security Council must take measures to punish those guilty for the deaths of people when Israel raided a number of ships in neutral waters that were bringing humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Monday.
Davutoglu, who is at the United Nations, said Israel must also apologize to the world community and the families for those who were killed on board the ship, and that Israel must immediately lift the blockade on the Gaza Strip.
"Israel must be prepared to face consequences of its illegal actions. Turkey calls on the people and government of Israel to refrain from repeating such unacceptable steps in the future," the foreign minister said during an extraordinary session at the UN.
