An anti-Israel Turkish movie filmed in part aboard the intercepted flotilla ship the Marmara will not open in Germany as scheduled.
Germany’s movie-ratings agency announced Tuesday that it would not allow “Valley of the Wolves-Palestine” to open Thursday, saying it had not had time to review the film.
The film had been scheduled to open on International Holocaust Day. More than 3 million ethnic Turks live in Germany, according to The Wall Street Journal.
It is scheduled to be released Friday in more than 100 countries, including Turkey.
“Valley of the Wolves-Palestine,” the third film in a series, follows a fictitious hit squad as it travels to Israel to assassinate the Israeli military officers responsible for the Marmara operation.
It is a spinoff of a Turkish television show that often demonizes Israel and Jews, and has contributed to the rift in Israeli-Turkish relations. A previous film in the series, “Valley of the Wolves-Iraq,” showed Israeli doctors harvesting the organs of Iraqis and sending them to Israel for transplant.
