The race for intelligence and information in the ongoing war in Syria and Iraq is nowhere near an end. We've witnessed reciprocal exchanges of classified data in both countries. The so-called “spies-war” has intelligence experts forecast assassinations of agents and removal of witnesses in Syria, Iraq and maybe Libya, in order to cover up information that could be exposed by the current wars. The classified data on Syria and Iraq is not only within their territorial premises, but there are exchanged between Europe and Turkey, and even in Russia and the republics of the former Soviet Union.
Russia declared having dismantled a terrorist network related to ISIL, whose members were trained in Syria. Moscow is inspecting its intelligence records searching amongst the people of former Soviet republics for possible ISIL or al-Nusra Front recruits. Intelligence data exchange with the republics has the clues of war. The United States fears that data might be leaked to Russia, which on its part is hunting for this information.
The US eventually questioned the mystery behind ISIL's Toyota and Land Cruiser trucks with the terrorists' black flags flapping on board. US counter-terror officials asked Toyota for help in determining the source of ISIL's 27 thousand vehicles. Toyota discovered a sudden increase in sales of Land Cruiser and Hilux in Iraq — from 6,000 in 2011 to 18,000 in 2013, and a drop to 13,000 in 2014. The Iraqi Interior Minister's spokesman reported: "Baghdad suspects that there are middlemen smuggling Toyota trucks into Iraq from the outside.”
Some experts ridiculed Washington for its late investigation – the story of ISIL's Toyota fleet was out in the open for years, and activists were raising questions months before the US's acknowledgment of the case. These trucks are not only in Iraq and Syria, ISIL is using the vehicles for transportation and parades in Libya. Experts add that US inquiry is odd as the companies and intelligence possess records of the serial numbers of all cars sold in such quantities. Furthermore there is information that Turkey and the Persian Gulf were aware of the transactions with Toyota vehicles, and the US might have been involved in these deals or at least has the explicit knowledge of the arrangement. Not to mention that these cars were acquired while the US was building, supporting, and funding the Syrian opposition, which has vanished to form ISIL. Given all these details experts foresee assassinations that could reach the high ranks of al-Nusra Front and other organizations, or any side that can to expose the details of the war that has been running for years.
