Israel and Turkey to normalize ties.

Israel and Turkey have reached an agreement to normalize ties.

A senior Israeli official told this to reporters traveling with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is in Rome.

An official announcement on the restoration of full ties is expected today, Monday and comes after three years of talks, encouraged by the US.

This is aimed at ending a rift over the Israeli navy’s killing of 10 Turkish pro-Palestinian activists who tried to sail to the blockaded Gaza Strip in 2010.
