Turkey has expelled Israel’s ambassador and suspended all military agreements.
The reason is Israels refusal to apologise for last year’s raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla.
This comes a day after a leaked UN report said Israeli commandos used excessive force when they boarded an aid ship. Nine Turkish activists died.
The Turkish Foreign Minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, said it was “time Israel pays a price for its illegal actions”.
Israel has refused to apologise and said its troops acted in self-defence.
“Israel, like any other country, has a legitimate right to protect its citizens and soldiers,” an Israeli government official told the BBC.
“Israel has made many attempts in the recent months to settle the dispute between our countries. Unfortunately these attempts were unsuccessful.

Sixth of January 2009, the Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez expelled the Israeli Ambassador.
What had Israel done wrong?
After 8.000 rockets from Gaza, the Israeli Government decided to stop the attack by removing Hamas militants during operation Cast Lead.
The Muslim brotherhood in Egypt, wants to expel the Israeli Ambassador. The brothers wants an end to the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty. Unlike Egypt, Turkey is a NATO-member.
What do Turkey want?
They do not want Israel to have borders. Turkey feels they have the right to send ships beyond any naval line and custom border set up by Israel. Turkey deserve the right to supply Hamas, and whoever Islamic terrorists they desire.
When a UN appointed panel says Israel’s naval blockade is legal, the turks respond in a classic Islamic manner.
The message from Ankara and Tehran is the same: “Give Israel a kick, and tell all other Muslims to follow suit”
The heat is on. Israel will be left completely alone, with only the Messiah to rely on.
Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”
Behold the lamb of God is about to return as the Lion of Judah.
