>Don’t Rely On Reliant Mermaid

>I think nobody would be surprised to hear that this years Reliant Mermaid naval exercise is canceled. The naval search and rescue exercise was the only venue there Turkish and Israeli navies come together officially.

The annual exercise with the objective to practice coordinated emergency search and rescue procedures and measures for safety of life at sea was scheduled for August. It would have been the 11th.

Last year, after the heated exchange between Peres and Erdoğan in Davos, Switzerland, the fate of the exercise seemed to be doomed. But never the less it was conducted despite all odds.

But after the Mavi Marmara incident there was no way to salvage the exercise.
