Something confusing about Turkey's behaviour. Turkish FM has never stated the lifting the blockade as a required action to normalize its relations with Israel. Turkish FM's position is: "We are continue to ask for an apology and compensation to the victims to normalize the relations with Israel and we will continue to emphasize the illegality of the blockade" Personally i believe Israel should apologize and compensate the victims. For the blockade Israel should continue to blockade and should check for arms for the imports of Gaza but Israel is currently blocking the most basic needs to be imported in Gaza like chocolate or cement or cinnamon which is not sustainable..
