Sale of aerial surveillance equipment manufactured by Israeli defense firm Elbit Systems canceled out of fear it would fall into enemy hands, namely Iran.



A defense contract with Turkey worth an estimated $140 million was canceled at the last minute, out of fears that information regarding the aerial surveillance systems to be sold would fall into enemy hands, it was reported on Thursday.
The Defense Ministry announced over the past few days that it intended to stop the sale of the equipment manufactured by Israeli electronic defense firm Elbit Systems to Turkey.

This is getting confusing... Turkey is a member of NATO , and isn't NATO an ally of Israel ?
I understand since the flotilla incident, relations between Israel and Turkey have been difficult, but since
Turkey might go to war with Syria, I thought it meant they were on their way to making peace again...

I guess I was wrong.

Israel cares for no one. When the US has done all the work for them, they will backstab us as well.

Israel is run by paranoid people. Always has been. Always will be.

Turkey can buy whatever they want from NATO... yet none of it EVER made it to Iran... yet Israel is pulling this crap...

Paranoid I tell ya.
