The Republic of Turkey government has rejected claims it sold jet fuel or gas to Israel, Turkey's Energy Minister said on Sunday in Turkey’s southern province of Adana.

Turkey's Energy Minister Taner Yıldız refuted the claims made to the contrary by some media organizations last week. 

“Israel’s occupation of Gaza is a serious obstacle to the development of energy projects in the East Mediterranean Region,” he said.

He, however, confirmed some firms use Turkey as a transit route for transporting oil to Israel.
