Less than two weeks after the Israeli occupation launched a brutal aggression on Gaza which left at least 49 martyrs, including 16 children, Turkey restores full diplomatic ties with “Tel Aviv”`.
Following years of strained relations between Turkey and the Israeli occupation, Prime Minister Yair Lapid announced Wednesday that his government will restore full diplomatic ties with Ankara.
“It was decided to once again upgrade the level of the relations between the two countries to that of full diplomatic ties and to return ambassadors and consuls general from the two countries,” said a statement from Lapid’s office.
The Israeli prime minister claimed that the decision is an “important asset for regional stability as well as very important economic news for Israeli citizens.”
The announcement comes less than two weeks after the Israeli occupation launched a brutal aggression on Gaza which left at least 49 martyrs, including 16 children.
Turkey ignores Palestine, bolsters ties with ‘Israel’
Relations between Turkey and “Israel” deteriorated due to the occupation’s policies toward Palestinians, culminating in the withdrawal of both countries’ ambassadors in 2018.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was considered by some as a vocal supporter of the Palestinian cause.
However, he has been lately reaching out to “Israel”, aiming to repair relations as Turkey’s official inflation rate was at a 20-year-high in April, which posed a significant challenge to Erdogan’s government.
It is worth noting that the talks between Erdogan and his Israeli counterpart Isaac Herzog took place amid a widespread Israeli crackdown on Palestinians during the holy month of Ramadan.
Many of Turkey’s social issues, economists contend, are the result of Erdogan’s unusual economic policy, which has pushed many foreign investors away from the once-promising growing market.
Ironically, Erdogan decides to open his country’s doors to the Israeli occupation to quench Turkey’s thirst for inventors, turning a blind eye to the ongoing murder of Palestinians and the endless violations of human rights.
