The struggle of the regional states and imperialist powers for their political and economic interest caused the Middle East to be unstable.With the establishment of Israel in 1948, the balances in the Middle East began to change and the 1948, 1956, 1967 and 1973 wars were experienced between the Arab states and Israel. The dispute between these states has continued until today, although not in the form of one-on-one conflict after 1973. Turkey cannot remain unaware of the developments in the Middle East, has been pro-peace in the conflict between Israel and the Arab states sought to balance policy. However, changes in Turkish foreign policy caused attitude changes from time to time during the Arab-Israel Wars.
