ANKARA, June 1 Turkey's Defence Minister Vecdi
Gonul said on Tuesday a diplomatic crisis with Israel after the
Jewish state stormed a Turkish-backed aid convoy will not affect
the planned delivery of Israel-made Heron drones to Turkey.
Israel's long-time Muslim ally Turkey has recalled its envoy
to Israel and cancelled joint military exercises after Israeli
marines raided an aid flotilla bound for Gaza on Monday.
Earlier this year, the two countries, which have a close
military alliance, wrapped up the purchase of 10 Heron drones in
a deal worth $180 million.
