Is­raeli am­bas­sador ex­its Tur­key as Gaza row mounts, which threat­ens rec­on­cil­i­a­tion deal

The Free Press Journal - - WORLD -

IS­TAN­BUL: Is­rael’s am­bas­sador to Tur­key on Thurs­day left the coun­try af­ter be­ing or­dered out by Ankara in a grow­ing cri­sis over the killing by Is­raeli fire of dozens of Pales­tini­ans on the Gaza bor­der that threat­ens a rec­on­cil­i­a­tion deal. Is­raeli am­bas­sador Ei­tan Naeh de­parted for Tel Aviv via Is­tan­bul air­port un­der the full glare of the Turk­ish me­dia, who ap­peared to have been spe­cially in­vited to film his exit. Naeh has been told by Tur­key to stay away for an un­spec­i­fied pe­riod of time. Tur­key had al­ready with­drawn its Tel Aviv am­bas­sador for con­sul­ta­tions while Is­rael or­dered the Turk­ish con­sul in Jerusalem to leave, also for an un­spec­i­fied pe­riod of time.
