By JTA

Israel reportedly may apologize to Turkey for “operational errors” during its fatal raid on a 2010 Turkish aid flotilla to Gaza ahead of a visit by US President Barack Obama.

The Turkish newspaper Radikal on February 20 reported that the partial apology may have been the subject of secret talks between Turkey and Israel.

Radikal journalist Deniz Zeyrek wrote that unnamed Turkish foreign ministry officials told him on February 19 that “such meetings could be going on.”

Obama, who is due to visit Israel in late March, has pressed for reconciliation between the US allies.
