After three years of talks Israel and Turkey have reportedly agreed to restore ties.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry had no immediate comment on the announcement which was made by a senior Israeli official travelling in Rome with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

They’ve been encouraged by Washington, to end a rift over the Israeli navy’s killing of 10 Turkish pro-Palestinian activists who tried to sail to the blockaded Gaza Strip in 2010.

An official announcement on the normalisation of full ties is expected on Monday.
