Turkey's Foreign Ministry has requested information from Israel over fuel tanks found near its border with Syria that allegedly were dropped by Israeli aircraft, a ministry official said Sunday. The request follows allegations by Syria on Thursday that Israeli aircraft entered its airspace and dropped "munitions." Israel has not commented on the incident. A Turkish Foreign Ministry official said Turkey had requested information from Israel on the fuel tanks on Saturday, but had not yet received any response. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to make press statements.
