Brilliant: Israel sent Heron drones back to Turkey

YNet reports that Israel has repaired and returned to Turkey the Heron unmanned aerial vehicles that Turkey bought from Israel and has been using to attack its Kurdish population.
About two months ago Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel of failing to meet its obligations in defense deals, adding to tensions with Israel which have escalated since an Israeli raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla killed nine people last year.

Erdogan accused the Jewish state of not returning drones that Turkey had bought from Israel and sent back for maintenance.

They are not loyal to agreements between us in the defense industry," Erdogan said. "There might be problems, you may not be speaking to each other, but you have to fulfill your responsibility under international agreements."

According to Wednesday's report in Zaman, the drones have been returned to Turkey. The report further claimed that after a long period in which Israeli technicians refrained from visiting Turkey for security reasons, Israel sent technicians employed by Aeronautics, the company which manufactures the drones, to work on drones at a Turkish army base.

In a conversation with Ynet, a Israeli security official confirmed that the drones had recently been returned to Turkey, but denied any delay in the shipment. "The company returned all of the drones on schedule," he said.
Whoever made this decision has a masochistic streak. Why should we be giving Turkey anything?

Let us all hope that buried in the command and control software for these drones is some code to allow Israel to take control of these drones if they have the reason to.
