Israel-Turkey: normalization of bilateral relations

As soon as Benjamin Netanyahu vacated the Prime Minister’s office, 14 months ago, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan moved to unfreeze Turkey’s relations with Israel. When Foreign Minister Yair Lapid failed to respond to Ankara’s advance, Erdogan outflanked him and found a warm welcome in Jerusalem’s non-Executive Presidency, eventually bringing around Lapid and the other Alternate Prime Minister, Naftali Bennett. Now another step up the ladder was marked, with Erdogan and Lapid announcing the return of the Ambassadors to the respective capitals, after a dozen year hiatus. Is it symbolic or substantial, and what’s ahead for the Turkish-Israeli relationship?
