Cabinet to approve Turkey reconciliation agreement

Diplomatic officials have confirmed to Arutz Sheva that the ministers will be asked to approved the reconciliation agreement between Israel and Turkey during a Cabinet meeting next week.

Reports from Ankara indicate that the two sides will meet on Sunday for a final discussion. While there, they will declare that relations are normalized again. The countries have been at odds since the 2010 MV Mavi Marmara incident in which supposed "peace activists" attacked IDF commandos.

All of Israel's government ministers are expected to support the agreement, including those who previously demanded a stronger stance against Turkey.

Turkish media say that the agreement will include the possibility of Turkey transferring goods to Gaza, though only through Israel and without affecting the blockade on the Strip. At the same time, the Turks are will not promise to no longer allow Hamas terrorists to reside on their soil.
