Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Tuesday in a meeting
with German President Joachim Gauck that despite Turkey's vicious
tongue-lashing against Israel over the past few years, Jerusalem has
been behaving with "maximum restraint toward the Turkish provocations,"
Haaretz report said.

Lieberman added that despite Israel's restraint, it will not allow
its officers and soldiers to be terrorized, for they acted completely
justifiably and in accordance with international law, as was also
determined by the UN's international investigatory committee into
the Gaza flotilla.

"Israel will continue behaving responsibly and will not be drawn into
counter-provoking (Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip) Erdogan, out
of a care for peace and stability in the Middle East," said Lieberman.
