Turkish Trade Ministry says the decision is to remain in place until Israel stops attacks and allows adequate humanitarian aid into Gaza.

Iran PressAsia: Turkey says it will impose restrictions on exports to Israel until there is a ceasefire and increased aid in the Gaza Strip after the Israeli regime refused to allow it to airdrop aid over the besieged and bombarded territory, according to an Al Jazeera.

The Turkish Ministry of Trade said on Tuesday it will no longer send to Israel items in 54 categories spanning iron and steel products, jet fuel, construction equipment, machines, cement, granites, chemicals, pesticides, and bricks.

“Israel continues to flagrantly violate international law and ignores the international community,” it said in a statement. “This decision will remain in place until Israel declares a ceasefire immediately and allows adequate and uninterrupted flow of humanitarian aid into Gaza.”

More than 33,000 people have been killed in Israel's more than six-month war on Gaza, according to Palestinian health officials, with many countries expressing outrage over the death toll and humanitarian crisis arising from the Israeli attacks and siege.
