'Mistrust of Erdogan' Could Undermine Israel’s Reconciliation With Turkey
TEL AVIV (Sputnik) — On Saturday, Turkey’s parliament, the Grand National Assembly, ratified the bill, which stipulates that Israel transfers $20 million to Turkey within 25 days for a 2010 raid on a Turkish flag-bearing vessel that killed 10 Turkish activists.

"Israel welcomes the Turkish Parliament's decision to approve the deal recently concluded by the two governments and looks forward to the next steps of its implementation, including the return of our respective ambassadors," the statement published Saturday reads.

In May 2010, a so-called Freedom Flotilla of six ships, including one sailing under a Turkish flag, tried to approach the Gaza Strip with humanitarian aid and activists on board. The flotilla was blocked and stormed by Israeli forces.
