OCCUPIED JERUSALEM: Israel has completed the sale of electronic warfare systems to the Turkish air force, despite ongoing strained relations between the two countries, according to the Israeli daily.
The original deal worth 200 million dollars, involved Israel's ELTA Systems Ltd., a subsidiary of Israel Aerospace Industries, delivering electronic systems for four Turkish Airborne Warning and Control Systems (AWAC) aircraft.
Following the 2010 Marvi Marmara ship incident, an incident that resulted in the deaths of nine pro-Palestinian activists and pushed ties between Ankara and Jerusalem to breaking point, Israel held off on delivering the remaining systems, worth tens of millions of dollars, the Israeli daily said.
