Turkey Expels Israel Ambassador Amid International Outrage Over Gaza Killings


Turkey’s government on Tuesday ordered the Israeli ambassador to leave the country, retaliating for Israel’s killing of dozens of Palestinian protesters in the Gaza Strip and underscoring the growing international fallout from the bloodshed.

The ambassador, Eitan Naeh, was told by Turkey’s foreign minister that it would be “appropriate” if he returned to Israel “for a while,” according to Turkey’s semiofficial Anadolu news agency, citing unnamed sources.

It gave no other immediate details on the expulsion, which was confirmed by a Foreign Ministry official.

The Turkish decision marked one of the strongest diplomatic responses after Monday’s deadly confrontations along the border fence separating Israel and Gaza, which has been under Israeli blockade for more than a decade. At least 60 people were killed and more than 2,000 injured, Gaza officials said.

  1. Who cares about this Hitler look alike and his terrorist Country that slaughters their own people? Why does Israel even have an ambassador there?

  2. This is very GOOD. All Israelis should not vacation in Turkey anymore or even fly thru Istanbul.

    he’s gonna hurt his people in their pockets and they’ll try to overthrow him.

  3. Any explanation why many, many Turks were eliminated just within the past 2 years because this Erdogan had to deal with an overthrow situation????
