OCCUPIED JUERUSALEM — Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, confirmed to the press during a visit to Italian capital, Rome, today, Monday, that the maritime siege on Gaza will continue once the agreement with Turkey is secured.

This, only briefly after Turkey and Israel normalised relations, following a 6-year dispute over Israeli attack on the Turkish flotilla to Gaza, “Mavi Marmara”, leading to the death of 10 Turks on board the ship, in 2010, whose families are to be compensated by Israel with USD20 million, part of a reconciliation agreement to be signed Tuesday, says Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım, who also confirmed that the two countries will restore diplomatic relations as soon as possible.
