The Palestine—Turkey relations refer to the current and historical bilateral relationship between Turkey and Palestine. Turkey's aid has been a source of humanitarian relief to Palestine, especially since the start of the Blockade of the Gaza Strip. Historically, Palestine was under Turkish Ottoman Empire rule for four hundred years prior to the days of the British Mandate of Palestine. Turkey has sought to steal Egypt's role as mediator in the Intra-Palestinian reconciliation process. Hamas members regularly seek asylum in turkey and have met with president erdogan. However, some analysts believe that Turkey is only using the Palestinian cause to advance its regional agenda and because it is highly popular among the Turkish public.
