Israeli Military Flights Face Turkey Airspace Restrictions

Arab-Israeli Military Forces in an Era of Asymmetric Wars (Stanford Security Studies)
The Turkish press reported Monday that an Israeli military plane was barred from entering Turkish airspace after the May 31st Israeli commando raid on the Gaza aid flotilla. After this was reported, Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters in Toronto that Turkey imposed a ban on all Israeli flights. What appears to be the real story is commercial flights are not affected in any way, but Israeli military flights on a case-by-case basis must receive prior approval before flying into Turkey's air space.
