US cancels arms delivery to Turkey after disclosure of Mossad agents to Iran

Israeli newspaper Maariv has reported that the United States suspended an arms deal in which Washington was due to sell US-made drones to Turkey, after Turkey disclosed the names of 10 Israeli spies to Iran.

Maariv quoted the Turkish newspaper Tarav as saying that the arms deal, signed in 2011, included 10 predator drones that Turkey had intended to use in its fight against the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

Washington’s decision comes after the Washington Post newspaper revealed that Turkish intelligence handed the Iranian intelligence a list of Mossad agents working in Iran.
