Thirty-three family members of Turkish activists who participated in the Mavi Marmara flotilla heading to Gaza in 2010 filed a lawsuit on Friday against Israel demanding compensation after the fatal IDF raid, Turkish Hurriyet Daily reported Saturday.

According to the report, the families of Furkan Doğan, Cevdet Kılıçlar and Necdet Yıldırım, who were killed during the navy's interception of the flotilla, are suing Israel seeking moral and financial compensation that mounts $10 million Turkish liras, or $5 million US dollars.

Thirty other persons who were injured in the interception are also filing for compensation, Hurriyet reported the families’ attorney, Uğur Yıldırım, as stating.
