Israel appoints ambassador to Turkey
Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 15
Eitan Naeh has been appointed new Israeli ambassador to Turkey, the Anadolu Agency reported Nov. 15 with reference to Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon.
Turkey signed an agreement with Israel on repairing the relations June 28.
Relations between Israel and Turkey deteriorated after the Freedom Flotilla incident in 2010, when a convoy of six ships, including one flying Turkey's flag, tried to approach the Gaza Strip with humanitarian aid and activists on board. The flotilla was blocked and stormed by Israeli forces, with eight Turkish citizens being killed as a result.
