Report: US canceled delivery of Predators on Turkey's disclosure of Mossad agents
The United States Congress canceled the delivery to Turkey of 10 Predators -- unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that are proving crucial in combating terrorism -- following Turkish intelligence chief Hakan Fidan's disclosure of the identity of 10 Iranians who had been working for Mossad with the Iranian intelligence service, according to the Taraf daily.
The daily reported that the claims about Fidan can be traced back to the year after the Mavi Marmara incident in 2010 when the National Intelligence Organization (MİT) suspended relations with Israel's intelligence agency Mossad and shared information about the Israeli agency with Iran.
Reacting to Turkey's move, the US canceled the delivery to Turkey of 10 Predators. Turkey was expecting the Predators in June of last year, but the US Congress decided not to accept Ankara's request because of the close relations between MİT and the Iran intelligence service.
