According to Turkish newspaper, Yeni Shafaq, close to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the head of the Turkish Intelligence Service (MIT), Hakan Fidan, is expected to submit a recommendation to the Turkish Prime Minister to annul his country’s intelligence cooperation agreement with Israel.

According to the Turkish newspaper “the agreements in question allow Israel to work on the Turkish territory. The cooperation between Turkey and Mossad began before Erdogan’s ascent to power which developed joint military exercises between the two countries and to agreements to improve and develop Phantom aircrafts, tanks and technological cooperation”.

Israel’s Channel 10 quoted the Turkish newspaper and said on Wednesday “the agreement allows Mossad agents to enter and exit Turkish airports without having to pass through passport control centres”.
