Gantz’s support for PM’s apology to Turkey – criticized


DEBKAfile’s military sources fault Chief of staff Lt. Gen., Benny Gantz for trying Sunday to have it both ways instead of solidly backing his own troops. On the one hand, the general said  the prime minister did well to apologize to Turkey for the sake of promoting the revival of strategic ties after three years; while, on the other, he praised as moral and resolute the 2010 Israeli IDF commandos who raided the Turkish flotilla to prevent it violating the Israel blockade on Gaza. Gantz said the elite unit kept casualties down to the minimum – 9 Turkish activists – whereas any other army would have left scores of dead.
