Israelis in Turkey told to hide

The aid flotilla, organized by the Free Gaza Movement and the Turkish terror-supporting organization IHH, originally set off from Turkey and many of those killed in Monday's confrontation were Turkish citizens.

As a result, tens of thousands of Turks demonstrated outside Israeli missions in Istanbul and Ankara, calling for Israel to drown in a "sea of blood."

"This delicate state of affairs is liable to deteriorate into violent outbreaks against Israelis in Turkey," Israel's National Security Council Counter-Terrorism Bureau said in an official travel warning.
