Turkey cancelled several military agreements with Israel after the piracy attack against the humanitarian convoy in the Mediterranean, leaving 9 Turkish nationals dead.

As a consequence, Ankara diverted an Israeli military aircraft overflying Turkish airspace on its way to Poland.

The plane was transporting about one hundred Israeli officers making a pilgrimage to Auschwitz.

When questioned about the incident while attending the Toronto G20 Summit, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan retorted that it was not his intention to make a show of it and that he would refrain from any comments.

Tel-Aviv claims that it had not been explicitly notified in advance that the annulment of certain military agreements entailed the closure of Turkish airspace to Israeli military flights.
