The UK has begun mediating between Turkey and Israel to help mend broken ties between the two countries, an Israeli daily claimed on Thursday.
Haaretz reported that the British government is delivering messages between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, but that no formula has yet been found to bridge the gap.
The report claimed that British Prime Minister David Cameron had asked Netanyahu whether he wanted to deliver a message to Erdoğan ahead of his meeting with Erdoğan in London on July 27. The daily did not report on the content of Netanyahu's message, but did say Cameron delivered a message.
