Bloomberg: Germany to reject the sale of Eurofighter Typhoon jets to Turkey as tensions simmer over issues, including Turkey’s condemnation of Israel. NATO allies have series of concerns about Turkey’s allegiances.

It is unlikely that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz will agree to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's renewed request to purchase Eurofighter Typhoon jets. Tensions between the two countries, including Turkey's condemnation of Israel, are creating obstacles. During their meeting in Berlin on Friday, Erdogan is expected to ask Scholz to lift the block on the sale of the fighter planes, which Turkey needs to update its aging air force. The Eurofighter is produced by a German consortium in collaboration with three other countries.
