Some 10,000 protestors hold demonstrations in Turkey's main cities following deadly IDF takeover of Gaza aid flotilla, call to close down 'Zionist embassy'

Around 10,000 Turks marched in protest from the Israeli consulate in Istanbul to a main square, chanting, "Murderous Israel you will drown in the blood you shed!" following the deadly IDF raid on
the Gaza aid flotilla Sunday night. The protesters earlier tried to storm the Consulate building but were blocked by police.

The Gaza aid flotilla of six ships, carrying some 700 activists, was sponsored in part by a Turkish organization.

Turkish police were put on high alert as thousands people marched on Istanbul's central Taksim square from the Israeli consulate where they had converged after news of the raid broke.
