SANA, the official Syrian news agency, reported yesterday Syria and Turkey signed a technical military cooperation agreement on Monday in the fields of defense industries and the exchange of technical and scientific information.
This cooperation agreement followed two days of joint Syrian-Turkish military maneuvers.
Israel Minister of Defense Ehud Barak said yesterday at an Israel Memorial Day event that “a Syrian-Turkish military maneuver is taking place, definitely a disturbing development. But I believe that the strategic relationship between Israel and Turkey will overcome Turkey’s necessity to participate in this drill as well.”
