Great article  on Turkey-Israel tensions.  Or, another failure of Erdogan’s foreign  policy initiatives


Apparently neither Turks nor Israelis took Turkey’s Islamists leaders seriously when they later vowed to isolate Israel. In the period of January-July 2019, Turkey was the main destination for flights from Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport (mostly for connecting flights), leaving international hubs such as America, Britain and France in the dust. In that period, passenger numbers for flights to Turkey soared by 7% to 1.22 million.

Bilateral trade between Turkey and Israel exhibited a similar path, with two-way trade volumes rising sharply from $2.6 billion in 2009 to $5.6 billion in 2018, an increase of 115%.
