Israel-Turkey ties hit by war

JERUSALEM - Israeli tourism to Turkey dropped by 70 percent during the 22-day Gaza conflict that ended earlier this week, a daily Israel newspaper Yediot Ahronot said, citing unnamed travel agencies.

Political tensions between Israel and Turkey over the Gaza offensive, especially harsh criticism by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, were the reasons for the decline, the newspaper reported.

Turks may also be boycotting Israeli products. Ari Malmud, the chief executive officer of Israeli diaper manufacturer Hogla Kimberly’s Turkey-based operation, told Yediot that "the company’s customer service department has been getting calls inquiring whether we were a Jewish company or an Israeli firm."
