The Israeli government has allowed Turkish trucks to drive through Israel to the Gulf.
With the ongoing Syrian crisis, Turkish trucks carrying containers have not been able to get to the Gulf.
Iraq was not safe and then Syria became unsafe too. The unrest in Port Said and the continuing security problems in Sinai after the fall of Mubarak did not allow Turkish containers to follow the Iskenderun-Port Said-Sinai-Aqaba route.
However, thanks to a private Turkish-Israeli-Jordanian initiative, the Israeli government has allowed Turkish trucks to enter Israel from Haifa and then travel to Jordan. This is a cheaper and safer route.
Today, about a hundred trucks a week use this route. The potential is for around 500 trucks per week.

One of the amazing sides of Israel, is her obedience to the teachings of the Messiah. Despite the large majority of Jews, not acknowledging that Yeshua is the Messiah.
Genesis 12: 1-3
“I will make you into a great nation,
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.”
The Ottoman Turks have been cursing Israel for the past three years. Ankara have been a major sponsor of the Hamas, and even tried to force the Israeli navy to end the naval blockage of the terrorist regime.
And in return for the curses, the Jews bless their Islamic enemies, the rulers of Ankara.
Yeshua the Messiah is surely the King of the Jews.
It seem that many evangelical Christians have more to learn from Israel, than Israel have to learn from them.
