A Turkish action movie that opened in cinemas across the country Friday begins with Israeli soldiers raiding a Turkish aid ship and shooting at unarmed activists on deck. A Turkish undercover agent then appears in Jerusalem vowing to hunt down and kill the Israeli commander who ordered the attack.
"This is not about taking revenge for Mavi Marmara," Sasmaz said in reference to the Turkish ship on which the eight Turkish activists and one Turkish-American were killed in the Israeli commando raid. "The goal of the film is to show what the Palestinians are going through."
