jerusalem - Israel has reacted indignantly to the treatment of the ambassador expelled by Turkey. Turkish media recorded how the Israeli diplomat Eitan Naveh had to undergo a security check at the Istanbul airport.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry complains in a statement about the 'inappropriate treatment' of Naveh. The department says that the Turkish affidavit is asked to provide a text and explanation.
Israel and Turkey are at odds with each other over the violence during the protests on the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip. There were dozens of deaths on Monday. Turkish president Erdogan called that genocide and made Israel a terrorist state. Israel says to defend the border and holds Hamas responsible for the violence.
