Turkey will be given the task of constructing an international force for Gaza, a Middle Eastern diplomat said.
"Turkey is the best choice given its involvement in several peacekeeping missions in the Middle East," the diplomat said.
The diplomat is familiar with Turkey's efforts to end the conflict and spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the information.
It was not clear what role the force would play in Gaza. Turkish officials were not immediately available for comment.
