Is Turkey’s Cutting of All Trade Ties with Israel, & Joining South Africa’s Genocide Case before ICJ, A Turning Point in Israel’s War on GAZA?

Survivability News Special Desk: Turkey halted all trade with Israel as of Thursday, according to two Turkish officials. The Turkish move to suspend all trade ties with Israel was confirmed when Israeli government officials claimed that Ankara was also preventing third countries from using Turkish ports for Israeli trade.

“Turkey’s cutting of all trade Ties with Israel, & Joining South Africa’s Genocide Case before ICJ, may turn out to be a watershed moment for: Israel’s War on GAZA.
“It may also give shape to a new Middle East within the new world order that started emerging since the Ukraine War, and which accelerated the phasing out the single superpower world we have known since the fall of the Soviet Union, into the new reality of a multipolar new world order.”

Khaled Fattal, MLi Group chairman, speaking as an international expert on Geopolitics, Risk & Mitigation.

The move by Turkey was precedented by Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan announcing the day before that his country would also join South Africa’s case against Israel at the UN International Court of Justice. The UN court is currently assessing South Africa’s claims that Israeli actions in Gaza that have killed over 34,000 civilians, more than 17,000 children, and which have led to death of dozens of children from starvation, amongst other documented atrocities, are in breach of the 1948 UN Genocide Convention.

“It may also prove to be pivotal for the US role and strategy in the Middle East. including the legal and illegal presence of US troops in many sovereign Middle East countries.”
“This is also a new development that presents a new unmitigated risk of instability that will impact businesses and governments worldwide.”

Khaled Fattal added. 

All Turkish exports and imports to and from Israel were suspended, Bloomberg also reported, citing two Turkish officials familiar with the matter.

Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz separately said that Ankara had also started to block Israeli imports and exports at Turkish ports.

Accusing Turkey of breaking trade agreements, Katz said he instructed the Israeli Foreign Ministry to pursue alternatives for trade, focusing on “local production and imports from other countries.”

The Israeli Foreign Ministry hasn’t clarified, as of this writing, which ports have been blocked and whether Turkey’s move also involves blocking Turkey’s Mediterranean port of Ceyhan, through which Israel imports Azerbaijani oil. The Israeli Foreign Ministry is currently verifying the economic implications of a Turkish decision to stop the exports, a diplomatic source told Al-Monitor.

Turkey imposed trade restrictions on 54 product groups in April, a move widely believed to be in response to domestic pressure for the suspension of trade ties with the country amid the rising humanitarian toll in Gaza.

The two countries’ bilateral trade volume stood at $5.4 billion last year, according to official data.

What Are Geo-Poli-Cyber™ (GPCyber™) Warfare, Risks & Threats?

Geo-Poli-Cyber™ warfare has spread worldwide in recent years and is impacting everyone without exception through cyber attacks that are political, ideological, terrorist, extremist, ‘religious’ and/or geo-politically motivated. They are perpetrated by political and extremist groups, national security agencies and/or their proxies, and lone wolves.

Cyber security strategies and solutions that are followed like gospel have failed and will continue to fail to mitigate, defend and protect national sovereignty and corporate security from Geo-Poli-Cyber™ attacks on unprecedented scales and with devastating political, social, and financial consequences.
More Sinister and Destructive Than Financial Motivations

Geo-Poli-Cyber™ attacks are significantly different from financially motivated cyber-attacks in damage, scale, magnitude and require different and upscaled risk mitigation strategies and solutions.

Why Do Existing Strategies & Solution keep failing?

MLi Group chairman Khaled Fattal created the terms Poli-Cyber™ and Geo-Poli-Cyber™ (GPCyber™) back in 2012 because of seismic game-changing events he had observed years before. Fattal believed that these events and trends will cause …
