Turkish court dismisses case brought by victims of Israeli raid

A Turkish court on Friday halted a case brought by victims of an Israeli raid on an aid flotilla that killed 10 people in 2010, a lawyer for the victims’ families said, following a deal in June to restore ties between Israel and Turkey.

Relations between Israel and Turkey crumbled after IDF soldiers raided the Turkish ship the Mavi Marmara in May 2010 to enforce a naval blockade of the Hamas-run Gaza Strip and 10 Turkish activists on board were killed attacking Israel Navy commandos.
