Turkey reported that Israeli Jets violated the airspace over occupied Northern Cyprus. This is pure audacity from the Turks since this area is occupied by Turkish troops. It rightfully belongs to Israel’s ally the government of Cyprus.
(Reuters) – Turkey said on Thursday it had scrambled military jets to intercept an Israeli plane that violated northern Cypriot airspace this week, and demanded an explanation for the incursion.
An Israeli military spokesman declined to comment on the accusation. But the incident marked a fresh source of tension between the former allies.
A plane belonging to Israel, the model of which could not be identified, violated KKTC (Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus) airspace (above its territorial waters) five times,” the Turkish military said in a statement posted on its website.
Turkey has no business on Cyprus.
