    Turkey has expelled Israel's ambassador and cut military ties after failing to get an apology over last year's Gaza flotilla raid.

    The announcement came ahead of the publication of a United Nations report into the attack.

    An early copy seen by Al Jazeera reproaches Israel for using excessive force - but also criticises some of those onboard for violent resistance.

    Israel has yet to officially respond to the findings, however, Hamas, the movement which controls Gaza, has.

    Ahmed Youssef, a high-ranking Hamas official, told Al Jazeera that he rejected the finding that Israel's blockade on the territory was lawful.
