"Olmert courts Turkey over airstrike
Published: 10/28/2007 Israel moved to mollify Turkey over its airstrike in Syria last month. Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told Cabinet colleagues Sunday that he discussed the Sept. 6 sortie during a London meeting last week with Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan. Turkey had lodged protests with Jerusalem after discovering fuel tanks in its territory that apparently had been dumped by Israeli warplanes on their return from Syria. Israel has not formally given details on the target of the raid, which analysts speculate may have been a nascent Syrian nuclear reactor."
