Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday announced that Israel will no longer use Turkish airspace, according to an Anatolian state-run news agency report.
The report quoted Erdogan telling reporters in Canada that Turkey imposed a ban on flights after the May 31 Israeli raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla. He did not elaborate on whether the ban includes civilian flights.
The Israeli Transport Ministry told Ynet that the Civil Aviation Authority did not receive any report or notice from Turkey that it closed its airspace to Israeli flights. The ministry said Israeli passenger planes are continuing to fly through Turkey as usual. (Yoav Zitun)" see additional link

The United States won't be involved in this one, unless we get drawn into it directly. On one side, our ally Israel. On the other side, our ally Turkey and NATO. Yeah, we damn well better remain neutral.
If they violate Turkey's wishes and fly over anyway, there's no telling how Turkey would respond.
