Egypt's Mubarak offers Turkey 'condolences' over Israeli attack

Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak called his Turkish counterpart Abdullah Gul and expressed his condolences for the activists who lost their lives when Israel stormed the Gaza-bound aid flotilla.

Turkish Presidency Press office said Mubarak also informed Gul about their decision to open the Rafah border to crossing for transportation of the wounded as well as humanitarian aid and medical supplies.

Gul told Mubarak that both Turkey and the international community welcomed Egypt's decision to open the border.

Israeli naval forces stormed a convoy of ships of Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) carrying humanitarian aid for Gaza, killing at least 9 people and injuring 30 others on Monday.

Turkey strongly protested Israel and recalled its ambassador.

Four of the nine people who died in Israeli forces' attack on Gaza-bound aid flotilla were Turkish citizens.

Turkey does not need this man's help. We Muslims consider Mubarak is the core of all problems faced by Palestinians and Muslims.
