Turkish Red Crescent to travel Israel for transfer of dead activists


The Turkish Red Crescent will go to Israel to coordinate the transfer of the dead, wounded and civilians after an Israeli attack on an aid flotilla, a statement of the red crescent said on Monday.

The Turkish Red Crescent received a positive response from its Israeli counterpart "Magen David Adom" for its call for cooperation.

Four members of the Turkish Red Crescent will go to Tel Aviv early on Tuesday to bring back dead bodies, the injured and other civilians who were aboard the aid ships.

There will be two doctors, a disaster expert and an international expert on the plane that will fly to Tel Aviv.

The Red Crescent team will start to work for transfer of the dead, injured and civilians once it reaches the region.

Israeli navy forces raided a convoy of aid ships of Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) carrying humanitarian aid for Gaza, killing at least 10 people and injuring 30 others.
