Venezuela about to get treated like Turkey?

Thanks to the Spanish speaking activists I follow on Facebook, I got a heads up on the pact that Venezuela signed with the Palestinian Authority to sell petroleum products to Palestine at what's been described as a reasonable price.

And in order to Google an English language article about it, I got directed to Malaysia. Domestic media not covering this?  Not surprised. But after the bruhaha Turkey encountered from Israel when they sent a supplies #flotilla to Palestine, I'm wondering if Venezuela is pretending to be naive with an intention of evoking an Israeli attack, or just what that deal is actually involving.

Even though U.S. media is apparently asleep at the switch on this one, it's worth watching for whatever developments may come of it.
