Turkish president denounces Israeli attacks on Gaza

Turkish President Abdullah Gul said on Saturday that he was deeply saddened by Israel's attack on Gaza Strip and the attack was an act of irresponsibility.

Replying to questions on Israel's air strikes to Gaza, Gul said, "I feel sad over it. I condemn the attack."

"It is not only between Israel and Palestine. The incident can cause an instability in the region," Gul said.

Foreign Minister Ali Babacan had a phone conversation with Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, secretary general of the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC), and told him that OIC should convene at an extraordinary session to discuss the developments in the Middle East, Burak Ozugergin, the spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told the A.A correspondent.

Ozugergin said Ihsanoglu welcomed Babacan's idea and told Babacan that he would start necessary work to hold such a meeting.
