Yemen, Pakistan offer condolences to Turkey over Israeli attack

Presidents of Yemen and Pakistan offered condolences to Turkey following Israel's operation on ships carrying aid to Gaza.

Yemen's President Ali Abdallah Salih and Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari called Turkish President Abdullah Gul on the phone on Wednesday, and offered condolences to the relatives of Turks killed during Israel's operation.

On Monday, Israel attacked a convoy of six relief ships bound for Gaza, killing nine people including four Turks, and injuring 30 others. Turkey strongly protested Israel and recalled its ambassador.

The UN Security Council, which convened in an emergency session upon Turkey's call, condemned the Israeli intervention.

Turkey sent three ambulance planes and three airplanes to Israel to bring Turkish activists home.
