Turkey tries 4 IDF officials in absentia

In their continued efforts to undermine Israel and signal a break in diplomatic ties, Turkey has begun a trial for 4 of the IDF commanders who led the raid on the flotilla:
An Istanbul court is set on Tuesday to begin the trial of four top IDF commanders blamed by Turkey for a deadly 2010 clash on a Turkish-owned ship that attempted to violate Israel's maritime blockade of Gaza.

The hearing, which is likely to rekindle tensions between the two former allies, Turkey and Israel, comes months after the court approved an indictment by prosecutors, who are seeking life sentences for the top Israeli officials in the deadly maritime assault.

The accused are all but certain not to attend the trial, since Israel's government ruled that the soldiers who participated in the military operation to take over the six flotilla vessels that were involved in the 'Mavi Marmara' incident, and redirect them to Ashdod port, did nothing wrong.
Of course they did nothing wrong. It's the anarchists aboard the ship who were in the wrong. Yet Turkey's new dictators have seen fit to condemn the IDF officials regardless of evidence and there is no doubt they're going to convict them already. The commanders should not go to Turkey regardless as there's every chance the monsters in charge would take them as basically political prisoners and worse. Turkey isn't a safe place to travel anymore.

Update: Commentary has more about this subject.
