Syria: 50 western 'super spies' on Turkish border, press

17 September, 18:19

(ANSAmed) - ANKARA, SEPTEMBER 17 - About 50 top level spies from Western intelligence services are operating on the Syrian theatre from border areas in Turkey, Turkish newspaper Hurriyet reports, quoting the former head of the CIA headquarters in Istanbul, Philip Giraldi.

Apparently there are numerous "agents" and "many informers".

According to Giraldi, and the U.S. services are present with 15-20 senior CIA agents, who work primarily from the consulate in Adana and the NATO base in Incirlik.

Fifty 'superspies' apparently work on the turkish border with Syria (from the U.S., France, Germany, the UK and perhaps Greece): they do not enter into Syrian territory, Giraldi said, but they conduct the intelligence and assistance to Sunni anti-Assad insurgents from Turkey in "very close" cooperation with MIT, the Secret Service in Ankara, which has a leading role.
