Israel and Turkey agree to normalize ties: senior Israeli official

Israel and Turkey on Sunday reached agreement to normalize ties, a senior Israeli official told Israeli reporters traveling with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is in Rome.

An official announcement on the restoration of full ties is expected on Monday and comes after three years of talks, encouraged by Washington, to end a rift over the Israeli navy's killing of 10 Turkish pro-Palestinian activists who tried to sail to the blockaded Gaza Strip in 2010.
