Israeli Ambassador to Turkey visited on Friday Turkish Foreign Ministry and said he expressed Israel's concerns over a TV series aired by state-run TV channel TRT.

Ambassador Gaby Levy met with head of ministry's Middle East department Omur Solendil.

Following his meeting, Levy told reporters that it was a courtesy call as Solendil was recently appointed to post.

However, Levy said, by this chance he expressed Israeli government's and Israeli people's concerns and disappointment over the TV drama which he said was showing Israeli soldiers evil.

On Thursday, Israel's Foreign Ministry summoned a Turkish diplomat over the new TV series called "Ayrilik" (Separation) which showed soldiers shooting down a smiling Palestinian girl and a Palestinian baby held up by his father above his head.

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said the show "constitutes the most serious level of incitement, and it is being done with state sponsorship."

But Turkish State Minister & Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc said Turkish government had no intentions to break off ties with Israel, adding he would soon meet with Israeli Ambassador Levy to dispel concerns.

"The show does not absolutely contain anti-Semitic materials," Arinc said. "Anti-Semitism is a crime against humanity which we reject."
