Turkey is closing its skies to Israeli planes, Turkish media outlets reported Monday. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the closure in a meeting with Canadian journalists in Toronto, they said.But what's the point in flying there? Even before the flotilla farce, there were so many reports on their return to vicious anti-semitism, many Israel tourists stopped going there. It's practically best now to close down Israeli travel offices in Turkey, because there won't be much demand for them.
Israeli officials said they were not informed of any Turkish change in policy regarding Israeli flights. Unless Turkey makes an official statement, Israel will continue to assume that Turkish skies are open, they said.
Update: here's one more report about this (via Hot Air Headlines).
