Turkey's daily Sabah has revealed footage of Turkish gendarmerie forces arresting Turkish intelligence officers during a raid last month.

In the video, gendarmerie forces point guns at intelligence workers before removing them from the truck. 

Nearly 300 gendarmerie forces were involved in the raid.

The chief prosecutor’s office of Turkey’s south-eastern Adana province is investigating the police raid on delivery trucks belonging to the country’s National Intelligence Agency (MIT).

The raid, which is claimed to have been ordered after a tip-off, suggested that the trucks contained weapons that were going to be delivered to Al-Qaeda linked groups in Syria. 

After it was revealed that the trucks actually belonged to MIT, the Adana-based prosecutor who ordered the raid, Aziz Takci, was released from his position.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed his anger at the prosecutor’s actions, claiming that the prosecutor had no right to order such a raid without first informing the Justice Minister.
