Israel lifts Turkey travel ban


Israel has lifted a travel advisory warning its citizens against traveling to Turkey.

The warning was issued following Israel’s May 31 interception of an aid flotilla from Turkey bound for Gaza, in which nine Turkish passengers were killed.

The Counter-Terrorism Bureau on Tuesday afternoon cancelled the warning, following “calm and a lack of massive rallies against Israel.”

Israelis in Turkey are still warned to stay away from rallies and to avoid having political arguments with local residents.

Prior to the warning, Turkey was a popular vacation spot for Israelis.
