Israeli reporters ‘shoved’ in Istanbul amid diplomatic rift
Fırat Alkaç – ISTANBUL
The journalists were in the square asking people their views about recent incidents in Gaza.
One woman, who was not identified in reports, approached the news crew as they were interviewing taxi drivers and confronted them.
“You are killing people in Palestine and you come here to do reports,” she allegedly yelled at the crew.
The woman was taken to a nearby police station and released after being questioned.
The incident comes as tension between Turkey and Israel rises over the killing of scores of Palestinians by Israeli security forces in Gaza.
Turkey earlier this week recalled its ambassador in Tel Aviv for consultations in connection with the Gaza killings.
Earlier this week thousands of people around Turkey demonstrated in protest at the Gaza killings.
