    ANKARA — Turkey will never allow any third country, particularly Israel, to use intelligence obtained by a NATO radar system, its foreign minister said Feb. 17.

    “We will never allow any third country to use any NATO facility. Our position will be even more clear if it is particularly Israel,” Davutoglu told a joint news conference with visiting NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen in Ankara.

    His remarks came after some media outlets reported that the United States and Israel have carried out a joint missile test by using intelligence gathered by a NATO radar system based in eastern Turkey.

    Last year Ankara decided to host in a military facility base near Malatya in the southeast an early warning radar as part of NATO’s defense architecture.

    “It is a NATO system and we appreciate that Turkey has agreed to host one of the facilities,” said Rasmussen.

    “Data are shared within our alliance among the allies. It is a defense system to protect the populations of NATO allies,” he added without mentioning Israel, which is not a NATO member.

    Turkey’s relations with one-time regional ally Israel plunged into deep crisis in 2010 when Israeli forces killed nine Turks in a raid on a Turkish ferry, part of an activist flotilla seeking to breach Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza.

    In 2011, Turkey expelled the Israeli ambassador and axed military ties and defense trade after Israel’s refusal to apologize and compensate the flotilla victims.

    Leaders of the 28-member NATO alliance gave their backing in 2010 for the Europe-wide ballistic missile shield — which US officials say is aimed at thwarting missile threats from the Middle East, particularly Iran.

    Turkey, a member of NATO since 1952, has repeatedly said the missile system targets no specific country.

    “This system is not against any country,” Davutoglu said. “It is entirely for defense purposes.”

    Tehran criticized Ankara’s decision, saying it would create tension and lead to “complicated consequences.”

    I dont believe that to be honest and the sad thing is we can't control it since the whole missile shield story will be headquartered in Germany, Rammstein. All the information go to Rammstein and that's where the magic happens, not in Malatya.

    NATO headquarters is not a parliament. There is a degree of military professionalism and discipline. I'm pretty sure there will be high ranking Turkish military officers in Rammstein base.

    Really? why would Israel even want the information from radar positioned in Turkey? and even if Israel had the need it will figure out other way to gather information, since Israel is way ahead of Turkey technologically.

    Go ahead and compare the money and tech Turkey and Israel gets from US of A. I don't disregard Israel's innovation. But it is too much of you to play smart and disregard Turkey, when Israel gets massively funded by the US.
