    Unfortunately Turkish drone Anka is about a year away from full deployment. So Turks are desperate for other solutions meanwhile. It is a shame relations with Israel soured and there will be consequences for the fruitful cooperation enjoyed for years (peaking during AKP rule ironically!) but Turks have been fighting terrorism long before first drone took to air and will do so regardless no matter what the tools available are. Once Anka is deployed, and it is a very powerful and high tech system, and then followed by the armed versions, life for PKK leadership will be very different form what it is now. Let us hope drones make a difference, or Turkish Armed Forces will have to go in and maybe even maintain a demilitirized zone in Northern Irak. No body wants that, especially USA.
