(DEBKAfile) — Turkey launched a plan Wednesday night June 16 to campaign on all fronts for a worldwide boycott of Israel and decided to introduce sanctions leading to the severance of bilateral relations. Its pretext was the absence of a formal apology from Jerusalem for the naval commando raid on the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara “Blue Marmara”, which left 8 activists dead, and its rejection of an international inquiry of the incident.
