ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - Turkey's prime minister is calling Israel's raid on a Gaza-bound Turkish aid vessel that killed nine people a “bloody massacre,” and warns that no one should test Turkey's patience.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan told lawmakers in the Parliament that “this bloody massacre by Israel on ships that were taking humanitarian aid to Gaza deserves every kind of curse.”

He said the Israeli action was an attack “on international law, the conscience of humanity and world peace.”

Erdogan called on Israel to immediately end its “inhumane”' blockade of Gaza.
