Istanbul-based Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) organized the march on the eighth anniversary of the infamous Mavi Marmara incident.
On May 31, 2010, Israeli commandos killed 10 Turkish activists on Mavi Marmara boat convoy, which was headed for Gaza to deliver humanitarian aid.
“Damn Israel”, “Murderer Israel, get out of Palestine”, “Mavi Marmara [incident] is our honor”, and “Al-Aqsa mosque is not alone” slogans were also chanted during the march.
Participants also carried a huge Palestinian flag while marching towards the city’s well-known Galatasaray High School on the Istiklal Street in Taksim district.
Terming Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israeli soldiers as “murderers”, he urged Turkish soldiers to take revenge from Israel.
Since March 30, at least 118 Palestinians have been killed — and thousands more injured — by Israeli army gunfire in the eastern Gaza Strip.
