Israel cancels Turkey warning imposed after aid attack

Israel has canceled a warning to its people to avoid traveling to Turkey, citing an end to protests over Israel's deadly raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla.

The Israeli statement Tuesday said "in light of the calm in Turkey and the absence of large-scale anti-Israeli demonstrations," it was lifting its travel warning.

Relations between Turkey and Israel saw a heavy blow after Israeli commandos raided late May a Gaza-bound aid flotilla and killed eight Turkish activists and a U.S. citizen of Turkish descent.

Turkey's government harshly slammed Israel and withdrew its ambassador, as demonstrations swept across the country.

Turkey had been a popular vacation spot for Israelis, but tourism dropped significantly after the raid.

Turkey demands international independent panel on aid attack on international waters, rejects Israel's internal probe.
