Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon praised Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's decision to apologize to Turkey over the death of nine Turks during a 2010 naval raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla.

"Prime Minister Netanyahu has made a responsible decision, and the agreement he reached with Turkey does not contradict the principles we stood for in the past three years," Ya'alon said.

"The regional developments and the American involvement have enabled the settling of the crisis. This is a joint interest of both Israel and Turkey," he added.
