The trial in absentia of a group of former Israeli military commanders, including former chief of staff Lt. Gen. (res.) Gabi Ashkenazi, restarted on Thursday at an Istanbul court.

The officers are being charged with the deaths of nine Turks aboard the Mavi Marmara, one of the ships in the 2010 flotilla attempt to break Israel’s blockade of Gaza.

The trial of four of the most senior retired commanders, started with three consecutive days of hearings in November, but then recessed until Thursday.

It has been dismissed by Israel as a politically motivated “show trial” and threatens to further strain already fraught relations.
