New footage has emerged showing a raid, which took place last January in the southern province of Adana, on trucks belonging to the Turkish National Intelligence Organization (MİT) bound for Syria.
Since the raid, a court has accepted an indictment on spying charges against the 13 soldiers who stopped and searched the trucks.
Prosecutors have accused the soldiers of conducting spying activities against Turkey and the soldiers were also accused of wiretapping seven MİT members, as well as the family members of an eighth MİT officer.
The trucks were stopped on Jan. 19, causing an uproar with claims that the trucks were secretly carrying weapons to Syria. The government slammed the prosecutors and soldiers involved in the operation, arguing that both the truck and the personnel were protected by MİT’s legal immunity.
Interior Minister Efkan Ala said the truck was carrying aid to Turkmens in Syria, but did not provide any further details about its cargo.
