Details of Turkey-Israel agreement published

Under a newly decided upon memorandum of understanding that would allow for the revival of close diplomatic relations between Israel and Turkey, the two countries’ ambassadors will be reinstated, a pipeline will be installed through Turkey, and negotiations over the sale and purchase of natural gas will be launched.

The agreement also states that Israel will compensate the families of 10 Turkish citizens killed in an IDF raid on the ship Mavi Marmara. Turkey, on its part, will drop all legal proceedings against IDF soldiers who took part in the raid.

Turkey further agreed to crack down on terrorist organizations operating within its borders, and deny access to the country for Hamas member Salah Arouri, who allegedly planned the kidnapping and murder of three teenagers in the West Bank’s Etzion Bloc last year.
