Türkiye nabs 11 spying for Mossad in Istanbul bust

Türkiye’s National Intelligence Organization (MIT) on Tuesday said it had caught 11 people, including two Turkish nationals, who were spying for the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad.

The group of 15 operated a countrywide network and was helmed by Selçuk Küçükkaya, a man trained in Europe, the agency said in a statement.

MIT officers led an investigation in coordination with the Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office on Küçükkaya, with whom Mossad got in contact via Serkan Özdemir, a former Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) personnel who fled Türkiye to dodge prosecution for being a member of the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ).
