Turkey parliament to approve zionist Israeli deal this month: FM

11 August 2016 18:45



Turkish regime says the parliament will in the near future ratify a recent agreement struck with Tel Aviv to normalize ties following a six-year stalemate brought about by a fatal Israeli attack on a Gaza-bound aid vessel.

Ankara and Tel Aviv’s once close relations soured after Israeli commandos raided the Freedom Flotilla in international waters of the Mediterranean on May 31, 2010, killing nine Turkish citizens and injuring about 50 other people. A tenth Turkish national later succumbed to his injuries.

The two sides, however, announced the reconciliation agreement on June 27, after several rounds of negotiations.

The Gaza Strip has been under an Israeli siege since June 2007. The blockade has caused a decline in the standards of living as well as unprecedented levels of unemployment and unrelenting poverty.

The Tel Aviv regime has waged three wars on the coastal enclave since 2008, including the 2014 offensive, which left more than 2,200 Palestinians dead and over 11,100 others wounded.
