On Thursday evening, the state-owned Turkish Radio-Television Cooperation said its reporters were treated in an ill-mannered way during their three-day-visit to Israel. The TRT reporters had been invited to Israel by the Yilmazlar group, which has business links with West Jerusalem. However, the news agency said that its reporters were held up for hours in security checks. Israeli authorities confiscated a camera; when TRT objected, the officials said the camera will be held temporarily and returned later.
TRT said it has complained to the Israeli Embassy in Ankara. There has been no response so far from either Turkish or Israeli politicans.
