Turkish PM Erdogan’s son Necmettin Bilal Erdogan and his family participated in pro-Hamas, Islamist charity organization IHH’s “Kite Festival” organized to commemorate the anniversary of the raid on Mavi Marmara.
IHH organized the event in Istanbul as part of a program to commemorate the shahids of the ill-fated raid of the Israeli commandos on Mavi Marmara on May 31 of last year.
The kite festival was organized to be held in Istanbul and the shores of Gaza simultaneously.
More than 1500 special kites with the pictures of the ‘shahids’, Palestinian flags, and of Mavi Marmara that were prepared for the event by IHH were flown by the participants. PM Erdogan’s son flew a kite which had the picture of Mavi Marmara and the script that read, “Mavi Marmara Continues on its Voyage”.
The series of commemorative events will end on May 30 with a big march to Istanbul’s Taksim square, with the participation of many Islamist organizations under the leadership of IHH.
