TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Israel's Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Monday ruled out an apology to Turkey over May 2010's deadly naval raid on an aid flotilla bound for the Gaza Strip.

"Erdogan will not make do with just an apology … He also demands lifting the blockade on the Gaza Strip," Lieberman told public radio, according to the Israeli daily Haaretz.

Lieberman maintained that Israel acted as a moral state and said that even the UN report on the events surrounding the Gaza flotilla ruled that Israel acted according to international law, Haaretz said.
