A Turkish court has issued arrest warrants for four ex-IDF officers over the deaths of 10 Turkish citizens on board the Mavi Marmara in May, 2010, a day after the terror group that funded the Marmara voyage called on Turkey to reject Israel’s repeated offers to “kiss-and-make-up” with Ankara.
The court ordered the arrest of former Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi, ex-Navy Commander Eliezer Marom, ex-Air Force Commander Amos Yadlin and ex-head of Air Force intelligence head Avishay Levi, according to the Turkish-language Hurriyet newspaper Hurriyet.
