Turkey proposes charges against Israeli military over 2010 Gaza blockade deaths
Wednesday 23 May 2012
Turkey's state-run news agency says a prosecutor has asked a court to
approve murder charges against members of Israel's military for the
killing of nine people aboard a Turkish ship that tried to break an
Israeli blockade to reach Gaza in 2010.
Anadolu Agency says the court in Istanbul received the proposed indictment Wednesday and will have 15 days to decide whether to accept it. The prosecutor proposes charging former Israeli military chief Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi, the heads of Israel's navy, air force and military intelligence, and several unidentified soldiers who raided the ship.
The move comes after Turkey tried without success to get Israel to apologize for the attack on the Mavi Marmara aid ship and to compensate those killed as a precondition for normalizing relations.
