Turkey’s Prime Minister says more sanctions against Israel could follow the expulsion of Israel’s ambassador and suspension of military ties.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday that other Israeli diplomats ordered out of the country have until Wednesday to leave Turkey. Turkey also suspended military deals last week after Israel refused to apologise for the botched Israeli raid on a Gaza-bound protest flotilla that killed nine pro-Palestinian activists last year. Israel has expressed regret for the loss of lives.

Mr. Erdogan described the raid as “savagery” and accused Israel of acting like “a spoiled boy” in the region.
