Turkey has questioned US officials if non-NATO countries will have access to intelligence and data gathered by a proposed anti-missile defense system, according to sources quoted in the Turkish newspaper Today's Zaman.

In response, the US has said that the intelligence gathered by sensor's in the system would not available to any non-NATO countries, including Israel.

According to the Today's Zaman, many in Turkey believe that the secret role of the US-proposed defense system is to protect Israel from a potential Iranian missile attack. Israel is not a member of NATO, however, and is not eligible for protection from the NATO system. In addition, Israel already has its own missile protection system which is can counter threats in the region.
