Israel and Turkey to Restore Ties After Yearslong Tension Over Palestinians

Israel and Turkey mentioned Wednesday that they had agreed to restore full diplomatic ties by reappointing ambassadors to Ankara and Tel Aviv, after a four-year hiatus, within the newest demonstration of warming relations between the previous rivals.

Turkey recalled its ambassador to Israel in 2018 amid a lethal Israeli crackdown on demonstrators on the Israel-Gaza border protesting the U.S. decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. Israel mentioned the demonstrations threatened its safety and withdrew its ambassador from Ankara.
