Turkish military planes arrived at a military base in Ankara at 1:00 a.m. with 17 wounded Turkish citizens on board.
On Monday, an Israeli raid on the convoy of ships with more than 600 people on board killed nine people and injured nearly 30 others. Four of the dead were Turkish citizens.
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu was also at the airport at midnight to welcome wounded Turkish citizens.
Davutoglu told reporters that Turkey, once again, condemned Israel's raid on aid flotilla, adding that Israel would be called to account.
Davutoglu said Turkey would continue to protect rights of its citizens.
"Turkey will also exert all efforts for completion of the investigation in an international committee," Davutoglu said.
