The Istanbul-based Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief, known by its Turkish acronym IHH has denied Israeli allegations that it is linked to terror organizations.

Some 400 of the 600 passengers on board the main ship carrying the activists were from Turkey, mostly members of IHH. Most of those killed were Turkish.

The group is not among some 45 groups listed as terrorists by the US State Department's Office of the Coordinator for Counterterrorism.
