Turkey wants to improve relations with Israel despite hostile rhetoric

A Turkish diplomat has revealed that President Erdogan's hostile rhetoric against Israel is driven by political considerations in the local elections in Turkey. Despite the attacks, Turkey wants to improve diplomatic relations with Israel after the elections, including bringing back the Israeli ambassador and returning Turkey's ambassador to Israel. Erdogan's AK Party suffered a significant defeat in the local elections, with the Republican People's Party (CHP) winning in most major cities. The defeat bruised Erdogan's hopes of adopting a new constitution and extending his rule beyond 2028. Turkish stocks rose and the lira reached another record low in response to the election results.
