Turkish prosecutors have completed their investigation into 2010's raid on the Mavi Marmara passenger ship, in which Israeli commandos killed nine Turkish pro-Palestinian activists attempting to break the blockade of the Gaza Strip, Today's Zaman quoted Turkish Justice Minister Sadullah Ergin as saying on Tuesday.
Turkish news reports claimed last year that intelligence agencies had compiled a list identifying 174 soldiers who could be prosecuted for their involvement in the operation.
Today's Zaman quoted Ergin as saying on Tuesday that once the Turkish Justice Ministry receives the names of the soldiers involved in the raid from Turkey's Foreign Ministry, "we will send the indictments to the concerned courts.” In September, Turkey threatened to take Israel to the International Court of Justice in The Hague over the Marmara raid.
