Israel Says It Will Not Apologize to Turkey over Flotilla Incident

(CNN) Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Sunday that his country will not apologize to Turkey over the deaths of nine Turkish activists aboard an aid flotilla headed for Gaza in May. "The one who needs to apologize is the Turkish government for supporting terror regarding the IHH (a Turkish charity tied to the flotilla), Hamas and Hizbullah," he said. "There will be no apology, and if there is one, we are expecting it from Ankara and not vice versa." Israel has maintained that its troops used force only after they were attacked by those on board one boat.
