A plane enroute from Armenia to Syria has been grounded at an airport in Turkey’s eastern province of Erzurum to examine its cargo on Monday.
Diplomatic sources said that the plane enroute to Aleppo from Armenia was grounded while in the Turkish airspace.
Turkish authorities confiscated part of the cargo aboard a plane for examination.
The plane was defined as a civilian humanitarian aid plane.
Sources stated that the plane would continue its way to Aleppo if its cargo is not contrary to civilian aviation rules.
In Turkey, a Syrian passenger plane had been forced to land at Ankara’s Esenboga Airport on October 10. Turkish F-16s forced down Airbus A320, which was flying from Moscow to Damascus, over suspicions that it had weapons on board.
