Israel expects Turkey to take action against the Iranian cargo plane that was allegedly carrying weaponry for Syria, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said at a press conference on Wednesday.

"The plane was stopped in Turkey and we expect every authority to do what needs to be done," Barak said.

The Turkish government on Wednesday denied reports that Turkish military jets forced an Iranian cargo plane to land at Biyarbakir airport Tuesday night in order to check it for Iranian arms meant for Syria, reported AP.
