Defense Minister Benny Gantz will visit Turkey next week, the first visit by an Israeli defense minister in a decade. Gantz will meet with his counterpart Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar and will be welcomed by an honor guard in Ankara. The visit, just days before Israel’s election, comes after a visit to Azerbaijan, a close ally of Turkey. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited Azerbaijan on Thursday where he met his counterpart Ilham Aliyev.
