Turkish General Staff denied news reports circulating Friday that Israel had "harassed" Turkish gas exploration vessels with low-flying air-craft Thursday night, Turkish Today's Zaman reported according to a general staff statement.

The Turkish statement said that the reports "do not reflect the truth," Today's Zaman said.

According to the report, Israel had sent two F-15 aircraft through Greek and Turkish Cypriot airspace, ignoring warning from Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus officials before flying back to Israel.

The IAF then reportedly sent a helicopter, which hovered low above research ship belonging to Turkey.
