TURKEY AND ISRAEL ARE AGAIN CONFLICTING
YEREVAN, OCTOBER 30, ARMENPRESS: Turkish government send the
three Heron drones back after technical problems were found with
the aircraft, Turkish news outlet NTV reported. Turkey acquired the
drones four years ago as part of a 10 drone, $183 million deal with
Israel Aerospace Industries.
According to Israel Radio, Ankara claimed the Israeli government
has rejected repeated requests to repair the aircraft, as specified
in their agreement. As a result, Turkey has decided to return them
to Israel and demand compensation for damages incurred because of
Israel’s unwillingness to meet its obligations.
Kurdish news agency has recently reported that the partisans of
Kurdistan Workers’ Party have brought down Heron drones.
