Hawks, doves and skeptics will certainly be arguing about what this latest announcement really means.
In what looks like a rare diplomatic change of heart this week, Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu has issued an apology over Israel’s role in attacking a Turkish humanitarian flotilla which tried to break Israel’s humanitarian blockade of Gaza in 2010.
Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan has also agreed to accept the Israeli apology and to normalise relations between the two nations, relations which abruptly broke down following the UN report in 2011 which made public the storming of Gaza bound aid flotilla. Turkey has also agreed to drop its criminal charges against Israeli military brass, including those against former chief of staff Gabi Ashkenazi.
