Turks in Israel

Regions with significant populations

The Turks in Israel, also referred to as Israeli Turkmen[2] are ethnic Turkish descendants who have had a long-established presence in the region.

Migration of Turkish settlers to the Levant began in the 12th century, and continued throughout the Mamluk and Ottoman rule.[2]

In early 2000s, Turkish workers from the Republic of Turkey have settled in Israel and work predominantly on construction projects.[3]


During and after the 1947–1949 Palestine war, some Turkmen fled the region and settled in Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon.[4]

During the British mandate of Palestine, the Turkmen lived mostly in the Jezreel Valley region; and, up until the Israeli conquest in 1967, Turkmen tribes lived in the Golan Heights.[2]
