Palestinian activists on Saturday marked four years since IDF commandos raided the Gaza-bound, Turkish flotilla Mavi Marmara in 2010, rallying against Israel's blockade of the coastal enclave.

"Today we mourn those who sacrificed their lives for Palestine," said Gaza lawmaker Jamal al-Khudari.

Eight Turkish citizens and a Turkish-American died during the incident after the ship challenged Israel's naval blockade of the Strip.

Reuters contributed to this report.
