The relations between Turkey and Israel are in the biggest crisis since they were renewed in 2016 as part of the reconciliation agreement.

Ambassador Eitan Na'eh was seen in Istanbul's main global airport en route to Tel Aviv.

Naeh has been told by Turkey to stay away for an unspecified period of time.

Turkey asked Israel's consul-general in Istanbul, Yossi Levi Safri, to leave the country, Turkish media reported citing sources in the Turkish Foreign Ministry on May 16.

"The Turkish charge d'affairs in Tel Aviv was summoned for a dressing down", the Foreign Ministry said in a statement, inviting Israeli journalists to film Umut Deniz's entrance to the Foreign Ministry building in Jerusalem at 1 p.m. and stating the exact gate through which he would be entering.

"The [central bank] is closely monitoring the unhealthy price formations in the markets", the bank said in a statement.

Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali and Prime Minister's Security Affairs Adviser Maj Gen (retd) Tarique Ahmed Siddique will join the summit, a senior official at the Foreign Ministry told UNB on Wednesday.

Turkey has been among the most vocal critics of the Israeli use of deadly force against protesters at the Gaza border and of the USA decision to open its new embassy in Jerusalem.

Addressing the Commons over the growing crisis in Gaza, the Foreign Secretary insisted the United Kingdom remains committed to a two-state Israel-Palestine solution, with Jerusalem as the shared capital. Turkey, strongly critical of the US decision to relocate its embassy to Jerusalem, had already recalled for consultations its ambassadors to Tel Aviv and Washington.

The Turkish leader has engaged in intense telephone diplomacy to drum up support for the summit, speaking to leaders including Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Saudi King Salman, Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas and Jordan's King Abdullah. "There is no doubt he well understands terrorism and slaughter", Netanyahu tweeted.
