Israel listened in on communications between Turkish fighter jet pilots in order to discover details of the Turkish Air Force's training programs and flight strategies, Today's Zaman reported Wednesday, citing Turkish daily Habertürk.

According to the report, Israeli spies wiretapped conversations between pilots of Turkish jets during training exercises at the Konya 3rd Main Jet Base Command.

The Israeli espionage has prompted the Turkish Air Force to initiate a program to encrypt communications between fighter jet pilots on such missions, the report added.

The Jerusalem Post could not confirm the veracity of the report.
