Turkey: Israel Could Remain Isolated

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Israel will "remain isolated" if Tel Aviv fails to apologize for killing Turkish human rights activists.

"Israel must apologize to Turkey and pay compensation. If it does not, it will be doomed to remain isolated in the Middle East," Erdogan said in his visit to flood-hit Pakistan.

On May 31, Israeli commandos attacked Gaza-bound aid ships in international waters, which left nine Turkish activists dead and dozens of others injured.

The Gaza Freedom Flotilla was trying to deliver thousands of tons of humanitarian supplies to the 1.5 million impoverished people of Gaza, who have been under Israel’s siege since 2007.

A team of UN experts are now investigating Israel’s deadly attack on the Turkish-flagged humanitarian convoy.

The flood in Pakistan affected 21 million people, with 12 million in need of emergency help, according to figures released by the United Nations.

Turkey has sent "at least 125 million dollars of aid, both by the government and non-governmental organizations," said UN special envoy to Pakistan Rauf Engin Soysal.

"We installed 2,000 prefabricated houses near Multan, and a total of 3,000 will be built," head of the Turkish Red Crescent Omer Taslit said.
