Turkey expects Israel to fulfill four demands related to the attack by Israeli military on the international sea convoy "Freedom flotilla", Anadolu news agency reported, citing diplomatic sources.
According to report, Turkish demands include apology by Israel, holding an international investigation, compensation and return of ships.
Relations between Turkey and Israel had sharply deteriorated following the May 31 Israeli military attack on the "Freedom Flotilla" which was carrying humanitarian supplies to Gaza Strip. Nine people, including eight Turkish nationals, were killed during the attack, 19 more were injured. In response, the Turkish parliament demanded the government to review relations with Israel. Reportedly, Turkey will not wait long for the implementation of its demands.
