Turkish Intelligence Smuggled ISIS Gunmen to Fight in Syria, Delivered Weapons to Terrorists

Turkish Daily

Following reports about the weapons smuggling operations from Ankara to the takfiri groups (ISIS) fighting in Syria, the Turkish daily Jumhuriyyat reported on Friday that the government of Ankara helped armed takfiri mercenaries to cross the border into Syria.

“The Turkish intelligence hired two trucks used in January 2014 to transfer scores of fighters from “Atma” refugees camp facing the border town of Bukulmez in Turkey to the Syrian city of Tal-Abyad, carrying weapons and ammunition,” the newspaper stated.

It also published photos of two trucks carrying weapons and ammunition that were stopped by the Turkish security forces after the smuggling operation.

According to the Jumhuriyyat, the two drivers were arrested for a while, but they stressed during investigations that their trucks had been hired by the Turkish intelligence.

“The drivers were told that passengers were Syrian refugees,” it said.

Last week, the daily posted on its website photos of mortars hidden under medications inside trucks that were formally hired for a humanitarian organization.

The trucks were stopped by the Turkish gendarmerie near the Syrian borders in Jan. 2014.

Syria was hit by a violent unrest since mid-March 2011, where the western media reports accuse countries, mainly the USA, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar of orchestrating the civil conflict in the country and providing terrorist groups with money, weapons and trained mercenaries.
