Israeli Mossad operation targeting Palestinians in Ankara – Turkiye makes sensational arrest
By Devanjan Bose
In a nationwide crackdown, Turkish security authorities on last Wednesday reportedly arrested several people linked to an Istanbul consulting company allegedly involved in targeting Palestinian ex-pats and organizations operating in Turkiye.
As part of an operation launched earlier this week, 44 suspects had been identified as having ties to the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad. This is one of the largest concerted clean-ups by the Turkish Government in recent times.
The Istanbul authorities have arrested several suspects allegedly linked with the Israeli secret agency Mossad who was involved in targeting Palestinian ex-pats living in Turkey.
Seven have been jailed, others remain at large, and some are still being investigated by Turkey’s counter-espionage unit.
The suspected operation against Palestinian citizens, non-governmental organizations, and institutions based on Turkish soil is contemplated to have involved intimidation and damaging reputational remarks made via social media channels, as well as information about them being leaked to Mossad. In return, the espionage network is alleged to have received a handsome amount in return for their covert actions.
Camouflaged Private Detective Associations are suspected Mossad operatives
The clandestine operations were initiated by the founder President of the Private Detectives Association in Turkey, Ismail Yetimoglu who has also been arrested.
He became a private detective in 2003 after 23 years of working as a civil servant and opened his company in 2007.
Turkish authorities have been scrutinizing Istanbul-based consulting firms for some time over claims some were being paid to spy on Palestinians and their non-governmental organizations. Jason Brodsky the Policy Director at ‘United Against Nuclear Iran’ stated that the latest operations lead to the conclusion that Turkey has a complicated set of responsibilities and interests that it has to balance with respect to Israel, Iran, and the Palestinians.
