Washington's reported green light to Turkey to proceed with a large-scale weapons sale to the Lebanese army has irked Israeli echelons.
Citing unnamed senior Israeli military circles, Israel's Debkafile website with close links to the Israeli intelligence service Mossad, said the deal has "staggered" Israeli officials, who had expected to be informed of the development from either Turkey or the United States.
The arms deal which was signed in the Turkish capital on Tuesday, also includes" the services of Turkish military instructors," Debkafile claimed last week.
"Our sources note that neither Washington nor Ankara bothered to inform Israel of the transaction or its scope," it said. link
