How effective is Turkey’s trade embargo with Israel? | Israel’s Gaza War News

Turkey said the ban would remain in place until Israel agrees to a permanent ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.

For many years, Israel and Turkey have been important trading partners.

It was a commercial relationship worth nearly $7 billion a year. But Israel’s war in Gaza changed everything.

The Turkish government is demanding an end to the violence that has killed around 35,000 Palestinians in seven months.

And Turkey’s president last month condemned Israel’s decision to block aid to Gaza. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced a total trade embargo until Israel agrees to a ceasefire.

But did he act under domestic pressure after it was pointed out that his failure in local elections was partly due to his continued dealings with Israel? And how will this affect both economies?
