Turkey Finds Israel Useful Again

Ofra Bengio, Head of Kurdish Studies Program at the Moshe Dayan Center, has published an article in "Tablet" on the normalization of Israeli-Turkish relations.

"At the end of December 2021, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan hosted a delegation of rabbis from all over the Islamic world, as well as from Russia. In that meeting, Erdogan stated that relations with Israel were "vital for the security and stability of the region"...

The relationship between Turkey and Israel reflects ideological, political, military, regional, and international changes that have taken place in Turkey under the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government in its two decades of rule."
