The agreement, signed last month, paves the way for Turkey to invest in infrastructure in Palestine, as well as to provide aid shipments.

The inclusion of a desalination plant within the package demonstrates the increasingly important role of water supplies in international relations. Turkey will develop a desal plant, as well as a power station, hospital, and residential buildings, as part of the deal.

Additionally, Israel will pay $20 million in compensation to Turkey.
