Protesters tried to storm the Israeli consulate in Istanbul, furious over the news that Israeli commandos had stormed six ships carrying pro-Palestinian activists on an aid mission to the blockaded Gaza Strip.
Dozens of angry protesters converged on the compound in the early hours of Monday, many scaling over the compound's walls.
DHA television showed protesters scuffling with police who tried to push them back.
The Turkish Foreign Ministry condemned the Israeli raid and said it was summoning the Israeli ambassador for an "urgent explanation."
It said Israel violated international law and will suffer consequences.
Israeli commandos stormed six ships carrying hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists, killing at least 10 people and wounding dozens after encountering unexpected resistance as the forces boarded the vessels.
