A court in Istanbul has dropped the Mavi Marmara case that saw charges being brought against four Israeli suspects, including the then chief of Israeli General Staff, a judicial source told Anadolu Agency on Friday.

The suspects included the then Chief of Israeli General Staff Rau Aluf Gabiel Ashknazi, who were all being tried for their alleged roles in the 2010 attack, the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, said.

Turkey and Israel renewed ties in June following a six-year split over the attack on the Mavi Marmara aid ship in May 2010, when Israeli commandos killed 10 Turkish activists on the Gaza-bound vessel.
