Turkish source claims Israel pressured US to cancel F-35 transfer

The source claimed that Israel pressured the US about the deal in order to keep air superiority in the Middle East. Turkey helped produce the F-35 aircraft, although the Turkish source believes that Israel is pressuring the US to give them Turkey's role in the production of the F-35 aircraft.
