Terrorists in Syria receive most of the intelligence about the government forces from the UK bases in Cyprus, according to news reports.
Britain has two military bases in Cyprus at Dhekelia and Akrotiri. They draw intelligence from the airwaves for GCHQ, Britain’s listening post in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
The British military uses the eavesdropping systems in the Cyprus bases to overhear Syrian officials’ conversations and then pass them to terrorists fighting the Syrian army.
Terrorists use British intelligence on Syrian forces’ movements to plan their counterattacks on the forces of President Bashar al-Assad’s popular government.
The procedure is like this that, a former Syrian official whom has defected to the opposition and is now spying for Britain, eavesdrops Syrian officials and the armed forces’ conversations and then pass them to authorities in Turkey to be put at the disposal of terrorists fighting the Syrian forces.
The British authorities ‘know about and approve 100 percent’ signals intelligence from their Cyprus bases being passed through Turkey to the terrorists.
According to the official, the most valuable intelligence so far has been about the movements of Syrian forces towards the stricken second city of Aleppo, which is partly controlled by terrorists.
The opposition official said terrorists in Aleppo had also received US satellite imagery, which the Turks had passed on from the CIA.
