Turkey reportedly halts all trade with Israel

TEHRAN, May 02 (MNA) – Turkey stopped all trade with Israel as of Thursday, according to two Turkish officials familiar with the matter, media outlets have reported.

The move expands last month’s restriction on some Turkish exports to occupied Palestine, according to Bloomberg.

Ankara hasn’t formally announced the suspension and it wasn’t clear under what conditions trade would resume. 

The move came a day after Turkey announced plans to join South Africa’s case at the United Nations' highest court as a plaintiff blaming Israel for committing genocide in the Gaza Strip.

Israel waged a genocidal war on the besieged Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian Hamas Resistance group carried out a historic operation against the occupying entity in retaliation for the regime’s intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

At least 34,596 Palestinians have been killed and 77,816 wounded in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7.

Israel has imposed a complete siege on the densely populated territory, cutting off fuel, electricity, food, and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.
