"Its official that Israel committed war crimes"

Umman said that there were several cases, both international and domestic, filed against the state of Israel after the incident. He also pin pointed that under the international criminal court, it has been registered that Israel has committed war crimes in the Mavi Marmara attack.

Within this scope, Umman reported that Mavi Marmara passenger Ahmet Aydin Bekar, who lives in Kayseri has won the case against Israel and stated that:

"In accordance to the ruling, the state of Israel who once again "tort liability" is obliged to pay 250 thousand TL in moral damages and a thousand in financial damages. This decision will act as a precedent to other ongoing cases across Turkey.
