Details of the three camps were disclosed yesterday by Major-General Aviv Kochavi, the head of Israel’s military intelligence — confirming fears expressed by his counterparts in Britain and the US. James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence in the US, said that a Syrian affiliate of al-Qaeda, Jabhat al-Nusra, had “aspirations” to carry out attacks on American soil.

At a security conference in Tel Aviv, General Kochavi pointed out on a map of the region the three al-Qa’ida bases in southern Turkey, close to the Syrian border. They are in the provinces of Karaman, Osmaniye and Sanliurfa. NER

The Turkish-Syria border area is awash with fixers who introduce naive young Muslim men from Europe and the US to Syrian jihadists. General Kochavi said al-Qa’ida fighters from around the world were entering Syria every week, and that they posed a threat not just to that country but to the whole region and to Europe.
