Turkish Ship Arrives in Israel a Gaza Aid

By Micah Halpern
I've Been Thinking:

The first Turkish ship carrying aid and journalists to Gaza has arrived in Ashdod port in Israel.

This arrival of the ship comes as a result of the agreement that was signed between Turkey and Israel as they normalized diplomatic relations only last week. The aid must come through Ashdod and then it can be transferred to Gaza over land.
This ship was carrying medicine, food and toys.

Taken together with yesterday's public criticism of the original flotilla by Turkish leader Erdogan, it seems as though a new era of interaction between the two nations has begun.

There are those in Israel who are against the transfer of aid to Gaza.

Their reasoning is that Hamas has still not given Israel any information about the bodies of Israelis soldiers or the whereabouts of two Israeli who stumbled into Gaza.
They argue giving aid is unilateral and Israel gets nothing for giving the aid.

The argument continues. If Hamas has either info on the bodies or on the kidnapped boys, they should inform Israel and then and only then should they receive aid - any aid, even aid from Turkey.
