Israel-Turkey ties will not normalise unless Gaza assault stops: PM

Israeli bulldozers roll along the southern border with the Gaza Strip following air strikes on July 10, 2014Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Thursday ties with Israel would not return to normal unless the Jewish state ceased its deadly offensive on the Gaza Strip. If not, it is not possible to realise normalisation between Turkey and Israel,” Erdogan said in the central Anatolian city of Yozgat after a dinner breaking the daily Ramadan fast. Relations between once-regional allies Israel and Turkey hit an all-time low when 10 Turkish activists died in a 2010 maritime assault by Israeli commandos on Gaza-bound ship Mavi Marmara in international waters. The Israeli assault provoked a sharp response from Ankara, which expelled the Israeli ambassador, demanded a formal apology, compensation for the victims, and an end to the blockade on Gaza — which is ruled by Hamas, a Palestinian militant group.
