The potential cancellation of the upcoming Turkish flotilla to Gaza could be a "window of opportunity" to repair Turkish-Israeli relations, diplomatic sources close to the flotilla developments told the Turkish Hurriyet Daily News on Wednesday.

The sources said there may be an opportunity to mend ties between Israel and Turkey following the latter's general elections, if the IHH organization suspends plans to send a ship to Gaza.

“The cancellation of the flotilla will certainly open a ground to normalize bilateral relations. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has already given positive signs by praising Turkish democracy immediately after the June 12 election,” a diplomatic source told Hurriyet.
