Turkey is calling Israel's decision to ease the blockade on Gaza a "positive" but "insufficient" step.

In a statement released Tuesday, the Turkish Foreign Ministry denounces the blockade as inhumane and urged Israel to lift it entirely.

The statement also says Turkey will continue its efforts to deliver aid to the region.
