Terror Ship Mavi Marmara Monument To Be Erected in Istanbul

Maybe they’ll include some of those chairs, metal rods, knives and pipes on the monument?

Turkey is erecting a monument in memory of those who died attacking the Israeli soldiers on the Mavi Marmara.
The Turkish Weekly reported:

A monument will be erected in Uskudar district in Istanbul in the memory of the nine people who were killed aboard Gaza-bound aid ship “Mavi Marmara”.

Uskudar Municipality said the monument would be erected across the Besiktas Ferry Port and would be a prototype of the ship.

There will be an epigraph near the monument, which would be made by sculptor Cemil Guntepe, and names of those who died would be written on the monument which will be made of marble extracted from the Marmara Sea.

On May 31, an Israeli raid on the convoy of ships with more than 600 people on board killed 9 people and injured nearly 30 others. Eight of the nine killed were Turkish citizens, and the other was U.S. citizen of Turkish descent.
