Israel Protests to NATO over New Hamas Headquarters in Turkey


erdogan-turkeyIsrael has recently appealed to NATO and demanded it take action against Turkey, after learning it has allowed Hamas to set up its diplomatic and military operational headquarters in Istanbul.

Israeli officials said it was inconceivable that a NATO member would maintain ties with a terrorist organization.

Hamas’ new operation is said to be headed by Saleh al-Arouri, an arch-terrorist believed to be responsible for dozens of attacks against Israelis.

A senior Israeli source said Tuesday there was little doubt that Turkish President Erdogan, a staunch supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, was aware of Hamas operations in Istanbul, and that he had most likely authorized the move.
