An Israeli plane carrying more than 100 army officers to Poland has been forced to re-route after being refused entry to Turkish airspace.
Turkey's Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan has confirmed Saturday's incident. He says the ban on Israeli military aircraft entering Turkish airspace has been in force since the Israeli commando raid on an aid flotilla in which nine Turkish people were killed.
The Prime Minister made the announcement before he left Toronto, Canada on Sunday.
A senior Turkish foreign ministry official says there is now an official policy in place banning Israeli military aircraft, on a case-by-case basis.
He emphasizes the ban doesn't apply to civilian flights.
The head of Israel's Transport Ministry, Yisreal Katz, has also confirmed they've received the notice and has asked staff to prepare a contingency plan.
Tensions between the two nations have worsened since the naval incident. Turkey's prime minister is still seeking an apology from Israel, and has recalled its ambassador.
Israel however has resisted calls for an international inquiry and has set up its own investigative commission which held its first session on Monday.
