TEHRAN, May 23 (MNA) – Turkish intelligence forces in Istanbul dismantled a Mossad-linked spy network that was operating against the Islamic Republic of Iran's targets, the local media reported.

Turkish intelligence discovered a cell of 15 people who probably work for the Mossad, Israel's secret service, against Iranian targets in the country, "Daily Sabah" reported.

Turkish intelligence (MIT) discovered the cell of spies during an operation that lasted 18 months.

The head of the cell is called Selcuk Kucukkaya, a Turkish businessman, who had alleged links with Fethullah Gulen movement according to Ankara media.
