Turkish President Abdullah Gul said Thursday, in reference to Israel's attack on ships carrying aid material to Gaza earlier this week, Israel had made one of its greatest mistakes in history.
Speaking to reporters while visiting the Governor of the central Anatolian province of Corum, President Gul said that Israel will soon understand how big a mistake they have made.
There is no doubt that Turkey will never forgive an attack against its citizens and ships in international waters, Gul underlined.
Turkey will definitely do what it has to do in the wake of such an attack, Gul stressed.
Israel has made a great mistake which it will regret. We will never forget Israel's attack, Gul said.
Israel's attack has caused great uproar in the world. The United Nations Security Council unanimously condemned Israel's attack. An independent committee will be established to investigate into Israel's attack, Gul noted.
Israel's act was highly important and will be prosecuted accordingly. This is not an issue that could be forgotten, Gul said.
Asked by a journalist about future Turkish-Israeli relations, President Gul said that "as of this hour, Turkish-Israeli relations will never be the same".
