[Hatay is the coastal region where the body of Russian General Yuri Yevgenyevich Ivanov was recovered, after drowning in Syria, on August 6, 2010, approximately 40 miles south of there (SEE: The Obscenity of Humanitarian Warfare). This area today is “ground zero” in the invasion of Syria by the mercenaries of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the United States. General Ivanov was murdered to prevent him reporting on what he saw there. The build-up to invasion was taking place there, even in 2010, so was the great spy war.]
The legislator of the Republican People’s Party, Refik Er-Yilmaz, said that thousands of CIA and Mossad agents are currently in the province and are moving freely in the area, Turkish media reported.
He noted that local people in the province are getting agitated over the presence of the strangers.
Turkish police remain mute spectators as the spies carry various types of identification, Er-Yimaz went on to say.
He also accused the authorities of allowing American and Israeli troopers on Turkish soil without any approval from the parliament.
Er-Yilmaz’s comments came after the deputy of the Republican People’s Party, Osman Faruk Logoglu, on Monday blamed Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party for fomenting the unrest in Syria.
Logoglu criticized the Turkish government for aggravating the situation by sending military forces and vehicles towards the Syrian border.
The former Turkish ambassador to the United States also criticized Turkey’s foreign policy towards its neighbor, saying it has been irrational and unsuccessful.
Syria has been the scene of unrest since March 2011. The violence has claimed the lives of many people, including large numbers of security forces.
Damascus blames “outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups” for the unrest, asserting that it is being orchestrated from abroad.
