Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu confirmed on Tuesday at a press conference that Israel and Turkey will exchange ambassadors in the coming days.

Israel had made the same assertion two days before.

The statement comes despite a heated exchange of words between the two countries, in response to Israel's bombing of Hamas targets in the Gaza strip in the previous days.
