Turkey has declined aid from Israel on Sunday after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit the southeastern part of the state, according to Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak.

“I am under the impression the Turks do not want our help,” Barak told Israel's Channel 2 News, according to Reuters. “Right now (their answer) is negative but if they see they need more aid and don’t have it, or if they rethink it, we have made the offer and remain prepared (to help),” he said.

The former strategic allies relationship between Israel and Turkey has been strained since 2010 when Israeli soldiers killed nine Turks during a raid on a flotilla bound for the Israeli-blockaded Gaza Strip.

While Turkey has received many offers of assistance from dozens of countries, the government has so far declined them all.
