Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his Turkish counterpart on Friday that Israel had "substantially" lifted restrictions on the entry of civilian goods into the Palestinian territories, Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's office said.

"Prime Minister Netanyahu ... noted that Israel had substantially lifted the restrictions on the entry of civilian goods into the Palestinian territories, including Gaza, and that this would continue as long as calm prevailed," a statement said.
