Israel and Turkey

" "Israel, whose relations with Turkey have been strained since its troops staged the deadly attack on the Turkish ship in 2010, has finally agreed to send additional electronic systems to Turkey, which will integrate those systems into its Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) military aircraft purchased from the US."
"From 2010 to 2011, trade increased by 30.7 percent, far surpassing even the growth during the heyday of Turkish-Israeli ties. In 2011, bilateral trade totaled a record $4.44 billion."
