High Court halts efforts to block Turkey deal

The High Court of Justice was clearly unimpressed on Tuesday with arguments from a range of groups to block the government’s deal with Turkey which resolved the 2010 Mavi Marmara flotilla incident.

The NGO, Shurat Hadin, filed one of the petitions against the agreement on behalf of victims of Hamas terrorism since the deal does not get Hamas expelled from Turkey.

Other petitioners attacked the deal for paying funds to families of IHH activists who the IDF killed during an altercation on the ship the Mavi Marmara as they commandeered it to stop it from breaking the navy’s Gaza blockade.
