ANKARA - President Tayyip Erdogan spoke with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas by phone on Sunday night and told him a deal had been reached with Israel to improve the humanitarian situation in Gaza, sources from the Turkish presidency said.

The call came as senior officials from both Turkey and Israel said they had reached a deal to normalize ties to end a rift that occurred in 210, when the Israeli navy killed 10 Turkish pro-Palestinian activists involved in an aid flotilla that tried to breach an Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip.

The presidential sources said Abbas expressed satisfaction with the developments.
