Israel is pushing Turkey to prevent a human rights group from dispatching a new aid convoy bound for Gaza, in an attempt to avoid a recurrence of last year’s tragedy on the Mavi Marmara ship. “We have explained our views [on the new convoy campaign] to the Turkish government,” said Gaby Levy, Israel’s ambassador to Turkey. Leby conveyed the message orally to Turkish Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Halit Çevik. Human right activists are planning to send a new aid flotilla by mid-June to break the siege of the Gaza strip. The ambassador has stressed that Israel will have no issues if humanitarian aid is transported to Gaza through legitimate means.
