The second Turkish aid convoy arrived in Gaza today when a ship carrying Turkish aid to Gaza docked in the Israeli port of Ashdod.

The convoy arrived in Gaza through the Israeli-controlled Karim Abusalem Crossing.

The first convoy arrived in Gaza in July after Turkey and Israel reached a reconciliation deal that ended the Turkish-Israeli diplomatic crisis that resulted from Israel’s attack on the Gaza-bound Turkish aid flotilla, the Mavi Marmara, in 2010.


Turkey will implement some projects in the Gaza Strip, mainly in the sectors of electricity and water.

Israel said today that Holland will help build a gas line in the Gaza Strip which will be used to run a power plant. Turkey is also planning to assist in the Gaza Strip to solve the continuing power outage crisis.
