(AFP) Israel nominated a new ambassador to Turkey Tuesday, its first since the two countries normalized ties after the 2010 crisis triggered by the Zionist entity’s deadly storming of a Gaza-bound ship.

Eitan Naeh was formally selected by a government committee, said the enemy’s foreign ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon.

He said the timeline for him being confirmed was not yet determined.

Naeh, the current deputy head of mission at the Israeli embassy in London, will become his country’s first ambassador to Turkey since Israeli commandos raided a Gaza-bound ship of activists in 2010.

The raid killed 10 Turks and prompted Ankara to expel the Israeli ambassador.

The two sides finally agreed in June to end the bitter six-year rift after long-running secret talks in third countries with Israel offering $20 million in compensation, an apology over the raid and permission for Turkish aid to reach Gaza.

They’d better inspect the Turkish aid reaching Gaza : with AKP=Muslim Brotherhood, I’d NEVER trust Erdogan but, well, having an embassy in Turkey allows to have Mossad operatives with diplomatic passports which is very practical for them. Let’s be real : under AKP, Turkey is now an Islamist caliphate, thus, an enemy nonetheless to Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Iran, Russia but ALSO to EU and Israel.
