Turkish-Israeli deal partially lifts Israeli siege on Gaza

The deal does not include severing Turkish ties with Hamas

Turkey announced on Monday a deal to normalise relations with the Israeli occupation state. The deal partially lifts 10-year-old Israeli siege on Gaza.

Turkey might have a role in a future prisoner swap between the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas and the Israeli occupation as Israeli PM said that Turkey pledged to take role in this issue

Turkey announced on Monday a deal to normalise relations with the Israeli occupation state. The deal partially lifts 10-year-old Israeli siege on Gaza.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said that after the deal, set to be signed Tuesday, his country and Israel would again have ambassador representation in each other’s country.

Also under the deal, Israel will pay $20 million compensation to families of the victims of the 2010 Mavi Marmara raid that triggered the bad ties, Yildirim told a press conference at the Cankaya Palace.

Regarding the Israeli siege on Gaza, a Turkish ship carrying 10,000 tons of aid will also move toward the Israeli port of Ashdod on Friday, Yildirim added.

The deal normalises relations more than six years after Israeli troops stormed a Gaza-bound aid flotilla, the Mavi Marmara, in international waters.

However, it is positive, but Gazans anticipated full lifting for the strict 10-year-old Israeli siege on their coastal enclave.

In addition, Turkey might have a role in a future prisoner swap between the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas and the Israeli occupation as Israeli PM said that Turkey pledged to take role in this issue.

Video of the Week New Clashes Erupt Between Israeli Security Forces, Muslim Worshippers

Temple Mount temporarily closed to Jewish visitors after clashes with police




The Temple Mount was temporarily closed to Jewish visitors on Wednesday at the order of Jerusalem District Commander Yoram Halevy after Jews broke visitation rules at the holy site, police said. The Jewish visitors were expelled from the compound for bringing sacred books to the Mount and trying to pray there. After one of the individuals was cautioned, another took out a holy book, and the group was expelled. Meanwhile, renewed clashes erupted between protesters and Israeli security forces near the Lion's Gate in the Old City, where police used stun grenades against the demonstrators. A regular dynamic has developed involving clashes between Palestinians and Israel Police over the past several days near the Lion's Gate. Dozens of Palestinians are present at the site on a regular basis, urging devotion to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount and condemning Israel. During Muslim prayer times, particularly the midday and nighttime prayers, hundreds and sometimes even thousands have been gathering there.

There have been outbreaks of violence during these periods, including stone-throwing or physical confrontations with the police. In most of these incidents, the police have been using stun grenades and sponge-tipped bullets to disperse the crowds. In a number of cases, journalists in the area have also suffered violence at the hands of the police. On Tuesday, Hassan Shaalan, a reporter for the Ynet news website, was struck by a policeman even after he identified himself as a member of the press. A group of Jerusalem-based journalists released a statement of condemnation over the incident and called on the police to permit reporters to do their jobs. The Jerusalem Police responded: "This involved an incident that took place in the course of violent disturbances of the peace that occurred in Jerusalem while the police were acting to remove the demonstrators from the street after some of them refused to vacate. The forces working on the scene are under constant threat to their lives. http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.802141
