Turkish intelligence agency breaks relations with Mossad

I suppose that no one should be too surprised at this.
Amid the strained relations between Ankara and Jerusalem, Turkish intelligence has severed its working relations with the Mossad, the Turkish newspaper Sabah reported on Monday.

The report stated that the two agencies, which once enjoyed tight cooperation, had stopped exchanging intelligence and conducting joint operations following a Turkish government decision on the matter.

The report's credibility remains unclear, but high-ranking Israeli officials privy to the matter neither confirmed nor denied it on Monday, and the prime minister's bureau declined to comment.

In June, Amir Oren reported in Haaretz that Israeli security officials were deeply concerned by the appointment of Hakan Fidan to lead Turkey's National Intelligence Organization. Fidan, a close associate of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is viewed as a proponent of closer relations between Turkey and Iran.
I really hope that in the not-too-distant future, the Turks will suffer greatly for their behavior toward Israel.

As long as Turkey keeps insisting it has done nothing wrong, relations are not likely to return to what they once were in the future.
