Turkish IHH: We'll Reject Any Israeli Offer for Compensation

The Turkish organization IHH, which was behind the 2010 flotilla to Gaza, declared on Thursday it would oppose an Israeli offer to pay compensation to the victims of the Mavi Marmara incident in exchange for the group dropping lawsuits over the attack.

The Mavi Marmara, which claimed to international media to be providing "humanitarian aid for the people of Gaza," was the largest ship in the flotilla aimed at breaking Israel's Gaza blockade on May 31, 2010.
