Israel has offered humanitarian assistance to Syrian rebels fighting the regime of President Bashar Assad, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said Monday, but the rebels have rejected the offer.

In an interview published Monday in Hurriyet, Liberman said Israel had been told that “it is much better to keep [our] distance.”

“We don’t want to impose ourselves on the Syrian opposition,” Liberman added.

Speaking with a group of Turkish journalists at his office, Liberman also said that Israel has nothing to apologize for regarding the Mavi Marmara incident, in which Israeli naval commandos killed nine Turkish protesters who had lynched them. -- Sam Sher, Time of Israel
