Turkey drops charges against Israelis on attacking Mavi Marmara ship

ISTANBUL, Dec 9 (KUNA) — A Turkish court has dropped charges against four Israelis who have been tried in absentia in the case of assaulting the Mavi Marmara ship in 2010.
The suspects included the then Chief of Israeli General Staff Rau Aluf Gabiel Ashknazi, who were all being tried for their alleged roles in the 2010 attack, Anadolu Agency reported on Friday.
The court reversed today the decisions of arresting the suspects, the agency said, adding that the move came as a result of an agreement signed between Turkey and Israel to provide financial compensations for the victims of the ship.
Turkey and Israel renewed ties in June following a six-year split over the attack on the Mavi Marmara aid ship in May 2010, when Israeli commandos killed 10 Turkish activists on the Gaza-bound vessel
