The Mossad spy agency has helped foil 12 plots to carry out terror attacks on Israelis in Turkey over the past two years, Channel 12 news reports.

The network, which does not cite a source, credits the Mossad’s ties with Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MIT), which it says have strengthened in recent years despite the strained diplomatic relations between the countries.

Most of the reported attack plots were linked to the Islamic State jihadist group and targeted businessmen and other Israelis in Turkey.

The report comes a day after Turkish media and a Turkish-based Israeli businessman announced the uncovering of an Iranian plot to assassinate him. It also follows recent reports in Turkey of the indictment of 16 alleged Mossad spies.
