Olmert: I Would've Apologized to Turkey

Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has suggested that he would have apologized to Turkey over the Mavi Marmara incident, when nine Turks were killed during a 2010 attempt to violate the naval blockade on Gaza.

“If I were prime minister, I would have apologized to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the Turkish people because civilians lost their lives,” Olmert said at a conference in Tel Aviv on Tuesday, the Turkish daily Today's Zaman reported.
