Syria Bans Turkish Fly Overs

Tensions between Turkey and Syria are turning into a he-said, she-said. Damascus announced a ban of all Turkish civilian planes from flying over Syria beginning midnight on Saturday. A few days ago, Turkey claims it intercepted a plane carrying Russian munitions en route to the Syrian army. The Syrian government denies this, and says Turkey has banned their planes from its airspace. Turkey has not announced a similar no-fly-zone rule, but does say any planes will be grounded if suspect of transporting military cargo.
