Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu denied a report that Israel had used a Turkish military base to launch a July 5 air strike on a Syrian arms depot in the port city of Latakia.

Russia Today quoted Davutoglu as saying Monday that the reports were "absolutely wrong," saying the spreading of such stories is an "act of betrayal."

The Turkish foreign minister said that "Turkey will neither be a part nor a partner of such ‘attacks.’ The ones who claim this want to damage Turkey’s power and reputation.”
