Iran Plane Forced to Land in Turkey

An Iranian cargo plane en route to Syria was forced to land in Turkey's southeastern Diyarbakir airport for an inspection. The plane, a civilian Ilyushin, landed on Saturday night on the orders of the Turkish authorities. On Wednesday, an IRGC cargo plane was also forced to land at the same airport for inspection, but the authorities could not find any material “contrary to international standards" [AFP, 20 March].
