Turkey Submits ’Israel’ Deal to Parliament for Approval

Turkey on Wednesday submitted to parliament a deal to normalize ties with the Zionist entity delayed by the July 15 military coup attempt, the state-run Anadolu news agency said.

The agreement has been forwarded to parliament for ratification before the legislative body goes into summer recess later this month.

In June, Ankara and Tel Aviv signed a deal to restore their ties which hit an all-time low after the 2010 raid by Israeli commandos on a Gaza-bound Turkish aid ship that left 10 Turks dead.Turkish Parliament

The text of the agreement submitted to parliament reaffirms that the Zionist authorities will pay Turkey $20 million (17.8 million euros) in compensation within 25 days.

The legal case targeting the Israeli commandos who staged the raid will also be dropped, the report said.

Israeli cabinet ministers in June approved the deal reached with Turkey, leaving Ankara to make the final ratification step.

But the Turkish government failed to send the deal to parliament because of time pressure created by the failed coup attempt by rogue elements in the military, which Turkey blames on US-based preacher Fethullah Gulen.

Once the normalization deal is ratified by parliament, Turkey and the Zionist entity will begin the process of exchanging ambassadors to fully restore their diplomatic ties.

It is not clear on which day the deal will be debated.
