Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited the people who are receiving medical treatment at Ataturk Teaching and Research Hospital in Ankara.
Erdogan said, "we understood everything much better after listening from them the torture, torment and cruelty they experienced. Human life is not that cheap. Israel will pay the cost of this attack in any case.” Following his visit, Erdogan said the conditions of the 19 patients, including the 3 patients who are in intensive care unit, are well.

Prime Minister who described the Israeli attack as a crime against humanity, said they will do their best to uncover the perpetrators of the incident before all relevant international organizations.

Meanwhile, Erdogan said that there were "no missing" people from the convoy that was detained by Israel when carrying aid to Gaza. Erdogan visited the people who were injured during Israeli navy forces' attack on "Mavi Marmara" ship and who are receiving medical treatment at Ataturk Teaching and Research Hospital in Ankara.

Asked whether there are missing passengers, Erdogan said, "no, there are no missing passengers. All people on the list given to the government were found."

Earlier today the Humanitarian Relief Foundation's (IHH) chairman Bulent Yildirim said that there were still missing people from the convoy. Yildirim said Israel handed over bodies of nine dead people so far.

"However, we have a longer list, there are still people who are missing," Yildirim told reporters.
