The Turkish president has said that Israel’s military raid on civilian aid ships bound for the Gaza Strip has caused “irreparable” damage to his country’s relations with Israel, and will “never” be forgiven.

The raid “is not an issue that can be forgotten… or be covered up… Turkey will never forgive this attack,” he said.
