Al-Arab: "TIKA" … Turkish intelligence arm with a humanitarian mask
On the Turkish issue, Al-Arab newspaper said, "The Agency is known as TIKA. It was established with the aim of coordinating Turkey's relations with the so-called independent republics after the collapse of the Soviet Union in Central Asia." In recent years, the geographic area of TIKA has expanded and, according to the Libyan source, has become a "bridge to further penetration into societies" under the pretext of charity.
The objective of the project is to organize courses in the maintenance of electrical appliances and renewable energy, with the participation of 100 trainees representing several regions and cities of Libya. However, a return to the agency's activity since the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi and the Turkish role in supporting militias and Islamists assert that it goes beyond this training even deeper.
