Istanbul, 14 Sha’ban 1436/1 June 2015 (MINA) – A group of Turkish people from the Humanitarian Relief Foundation (İHH) prayed the Morning Prayer before the Israeli embassy in Ankara to mark the fifth anniversary of Israel’s raid on the “Mavi Marmara” flotilla ship.
A group of people from the Konya branch of the İHH was on their way to Istanbul for the “Free Jerusalem March” which will be held at 5 p.m. on May 31, before the Fatih Mosque in the city, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
After the Morning Prayer, head of the IHH’s Konya branch Hasan Uysal said 11 buses went out of Konya heading to Istanbul. “We hope we will pray for the feast and Friday in Jerusalem all together,” he said.
In May 2010, Israeli commandos killed nine Turkish nationals and an American of Turkish origin in a raid on the Mavi Marmara, which was part of the “Gaza Freedom Flotilla.” Another person died in a Turkish hospital in 2014 after being in a coma for almost four years. (T/P011/R04)
