In yet another sign of the deterioration in Israel-Turkish ties, Turkey’s Star Gazete reported Tuesday that the military is installing new technology that will allow warplanes and ships to target Israeli vessels. Previously, Turkish planes, ships and submarines used American technology, which automatically classified Israeli equipment as “friendly.”

The new system, developed in Turkey, will allow the Turkish military to decide which targets to label as friendly.

The switch was pioneered by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s regime. The system was declared ready just days after Erdogan suspended defense trade with Israel and termed Israel a “spoiled child.”

Among  the planned deals canceled by Erdogan’s boycott of trade with the Israeli government may be a $141 million upgrade of Turkey’s F-16 fighter jets. The jets are to be one of the craft released from the automatic definition of Israel as friendly.

Erdogan arrived Monday in Cairo, where he is working to establish ties with the provisional military regime. He was greeted by an enthusiastic crowd chanting, “Allahu Akbar!” and “Egypt, Turkey, one fist!”
