The Gaza Strip's Hamas premier is in Turkey for meetings with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the head of an Islamic aid group whose Gaza-bound vessel was the target of a deadly raid by Israeli troops in 2010.
Ismail Haniyeh is on an official tour of the Muslim world, his first trip outside the blockaded territory since the Islamist group overran Gaza in 2007.
Deputy Prime Minister Mohammed Awwad said last week that Haniyeh's objectives are to discuss development projects.
Haniyeh had already visited Egypt, Sudan, Qatar, Bahrain, and Tunisia. Turkey is scheduled to be his last stop, before heading back to Gaza.
