Turkey doubles down on Gaza development

Since the flotilla attack in 2010, Ankara has boosted aid to Palestinians from $2m to $48m per year.

Since the Israeli army’s attack on the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara in 2010, Ankara has become increasingly outspoken in support of Gaza, the blockaded Palestinian territory the ship was trying to reach.

The support has come in financial terms as well: the estimated $2m per year the Turkish government donated to Gaza before the flotilla attack, has now jumped to $48m.
