The Nordic Monitor website made a bombshell revelation. The article fully confirms what Directus.gr reported a few hours ago, where we mentioned that Erdogan’s plan is to cancel the elections or rally his voters.
Directus.gr had relevant information, with Nordic Monitor confirming us. But that doesn’t mean we should panic! But caution is needed, as the issue is always what Greece will do.
But the issue that arises is the following. Will Turkey also use Islamists, mainly Pakistanis who are in our country? What happened a few hours ago with the Pakistanis is indicative!
“The Turkish president, who in recent months has repeatedly threatened to invade Greek islands in the Aegean Sea, plans to deploy a secret, specially trained unit linked to MIT intelligence to escalate tensions with ally and neighbor Greece of NATO.
The new MIT unit, whose existence has never been publicly acknowledged, is a relatively new tool in Turkey’s intelligence arsenal and will be used for the first time in mounting a military-style covert operation against a Western country.
The plot involves several options, ranging from sabotaging Greek islands near the Turkish mainland to raising a Turkish flag on one or more uninhabited islets and rock formations, as well as conducting a false flag operation to justify a Turkish response.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is still considering the alternatives presented to him by his confidant, MIT head Hakan Fidan, and has not yet decided what course of action he wants to take.
According to information obtained by Nordic Monitor from sources familiar with the plan, it will be up to this special unit created under the intelligence service to carry out the operation in the Aegean Sea with logistical support from the air and naval forces of the Turkish army.
The plot, which has been kept strictly confidential on a need-to-know basis in Erdogan and Fidan’s inner circle, will be set in motion sometime near the 2023 general election to rally the nation behind Erdogan and deliver an unexpected vote in favor. of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and its nationalist allies.
For decades, MIT lacked a military-style operational capability and its mandate was primarily limited to intelligence-gathering operations to provide the best information to policymakers in Turkey.
The MIT was based on several elite military units, such as the Combat Search and Rescue (Muharebe Arama Kurtarma, or MAK), part of the Special Forces Command (Özel Özel Kuvvetler Komutanlığı), the Turkish Navy’s submarine attack (Su Altı Taarruz, or SAT ), the equivalent of the US Marines. and Underwater Defense (Sualtı Savunma, or SAS).
That began to change when Fidan, a hard-line Islamist, was appointed head of the agency in May 2010. Fidan set out to transform the agency at his boss’s behest, bringing in new people from other government agencies and occasionally recruiting some from abroad, especially from Islamist groups”, the publication notes.
