19-08-2012 - A German newspaper has reported that a spy ship from the German intelligence agency is helping Syrian terrorist gangs.

According to a report on Sunday in the paper Bild am Sonntag, the ship is equipped to detect troop movements as far as 600 kilometers (372.8 miles) inland. 

The paper says the information thus obtained is being passed by the German foreign intelligence agency BND to United States and British intelligence services.

The "Bild am Sonntag" also says that BND agents stationed at the Turkish NATO base in Adana are listening in to telephone and radio conversations within Syria.

A British newspaper has also revealed that British intelligence, too, is providing Syrian rebels with information on government troop movements to help them plan attacks.

The Sunday Times weekly cited an opposition official as saying that British authorities "know about and approve 100 percent" the fact that intelligence from their Cyprus military bases is being passed on to terrorist gangs.
