MHP leader: Israeli attack open enmity against Turkish nation

Turkey's nationalist party defined on Tuesday the Israeli attack on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla as an open enmity against Turkish nation.

Devlet Bahceli, the chairman of the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), said that the attack on a convoy of ships carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza was unacceptable.

"The state of Israel has included the Turkish nation to these bloody attacks and the violence it has been staging against the oppressed Palestinians for years," Bahceli told his party gathering at parliament.

Thus, Israel caused wounds that were impossible to compensate, he also said.

Bahceli said the massacre was so serious, important and vital that it could not be hushed up by ordinary messages, calling back ambassadors, ineffective condemnation messages and decisions of diplomats, and heroism.

The MHP leader said a new strategy had to be determined regarding the future of relations with Israel, and called on the parliament to meet for an extraordinary session to discuss Turkish-Israeli relations.

Israeli navy forces raided a convoy of aid ships of Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) carrying humanitarian aid for Gaza, killing nine people and injuring 30 others.
