In a statement, Hamas applauded Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan for having won an apology from Israel for a 2010 naval raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla, and said he had told the group's leader Khaled Meshaal by telephone that Netanyahu also promised to "lift the siege on the Palestinian people".

Israel said, however, that it undertook to ease conditions in the Palestinian territories should the situation allow, and that Netanyahu and Erdogan had pledged to work together to improve the humanitarian situation in Palestinian areas, including Gaza.
