Turkey says Israel not keeping to defense deals

Turkey says Israel not keeping to defense deals

Turkey's prime minister is accusing Israel of failing to meet its obligations in defense deals.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan's comments add to tensions with Israel, which have escalated since an Israeli raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla killed nine people last year.
Erdogan alleged Wednesday that Israel had not returned drones that Turkey had bought and sent back for maintenance.
Erdogan says that Israel is "not loyal to bilateral agreements in the defense industry."
Last week, Turkey expelled Israeli diplomats and cut defense ties with the country over its refusal to apologize for the raid.
Erdogan reiterated that more sanctions against Israel could follow.
