1 Mossad CIA Mi6 and French Intelligence Operating in Syria Helping AlQaeda
A Turkish television broadcast a tape recording for telephone calls
of Mossad agents who were in the Syrian territories near the Turkish
Israeli daily, Maariv cited Ulusal TV which broadcast the calls in Hebrew.
The channel said that the tape was recorded through communication apparatus
which was existed in a mosque in one of the Turkish towns on the border
According to the tape the language of the speakers was Hebrew, but it was not clear.
One of the speakers said: “I feel high pressure from the maritime line,
anchorage 1. I want to free it in the direction 1,74K, over,” according to the recording.
Another replied with a series of numbers and then said: “You know? I will free it and at that time the forces would advance.”
The Turkish channel said that the speakers were Mossad agents who are working in the Syrian side on the border with Turkey. It added that Mossad is the only agency which is active in Syria, but there are agents who are working in favor of the American Central Intelligence Agency, CIA.
There are nearly 50 high-ranking intelligence agents on Turkey’s Syria border, including agents from the United States, France, Germany, www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/Britain and “perhaps Greece,” former www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/CIA agent Philip Giraldi told Tolga Tanış of daily Hürriyet in an interview. The former agent said there would be numerous spies working under the high-ranking spies and “many” informants working under them.Giraldi said he thought there were 15-20 high-ranking www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/CIA agents in www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/Turkey working on the Syrian conflict alone.
“They would be paramilitary agents,” Giraldi said. “They would be based at the consulate in Adana or the İncirlik Air Base, but could operate in the field as well,” Giraldi said, adding that the agents would not cross into Syria but would direct intelligence operations from within www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/Turkey in collaboration with Turkey’s National Intelligence Agency (MİT).“The www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/CIA probably has only 10 agents who are fluent in Arabic and maybe five who can speak Turkish fluently. For this reason, they need to rely on MİT agents when dealing with Syrian rebels,” Giraldi said.The www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/CIA lacks personnel who are fluent in Middle Eastern languages because their tours of duty only last two or three years before they are transferred elsewhere. “The agents do no have enough time to specialize in that language or culture,” he said, but added that the Russians were much better trained language-wise. “A www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/Russia agent receives language courses for two years before arriving in Turkey, and
once here, they can stay on duty for up to 10 years.”Turkish and www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/America intelligence agencies were working “very closely” on the Syrian issue, Giraldi said, adding that the U.S. provided www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/Turkey with photographs including satellite pictures and sensitive technical information it normally would not share with anyone. A Turkish intelligence officer “always” accompanieshttp://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/CIA agents in their dealings with officials from the Free Syrian Army, according to Giraldi. “This is not a rule, but that is how things work.”Giraldi guessed there would be high-ranking agents from France, Germany, www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/Britain and “possibly Greece” near the Turkish-Syrian border, and would operate from the İncirlik Air Base, since it was a www.hurriyetdailynews.com/tag/NATO base. Saudi Arabia and Qatar, meanwhile, worked in cooperation with the Turkish Foreign Ministry, he added.
