The Haertz reports that  “Israel expelled the Turkish consul in Jerusalem hours after the Israeli ambassador to Turkey was expelled on Tuesday. Israel’s official statement to Turkey on the expulsion of the Turkish consul, Husnu Gurcan Turkoglu, was identical to an earlier statement sent by Turkey to Israel to oust ambassador Eitan Naeh.”

In the meantime Belgium summoned the Israeli ambassador, Simona Frankel, to a meeting on Wednesday with a senior official of the Foreign Ministry.  The Irish government also summoned the Israeli ambassador, Zeev Boker, to express its shock and dismay over the Gaza deaths, the Irish Times reported Tuesday. Ireland has called for an independent UN investigation.
