  • Syria: Turkey, yes to ground operation but not alone

     

    (ANSAmed) – ISTANBUL – The Turkish army and ISIS are cooperating actively on the Turkish-Syrian border, the opposition Turkish daily Cumhuriyet reported Monday in an exclusive story headlined: “They managed the border with an Isis emir”.

    The newspaper’s editor-in-chief Can Dundar and news editor Erdem Gul have been in prison for nearly three months after publishing in May an investigation into lorryloads of weapons crossing the border from Turkey to Syria with the help of the Turkish secret services. The prosecutor has asked for life in prison for both of them and the trial is due to start on March 25, 2016.

    The latest scoop is based on telephone interceptions going back to November 2014 that emerged during an investigation by the Ankara public prosecutor’s office that susbsequently was transferred to the prosecutor’s office in Gazantiep on the frontier with Syria, in which Turkish officials have a friendly dialogue with Mustafa Demir, a Turkish jihadist considered to be in charge of Isis’s management of the border.

    The conversations indicated frequent contacts with Turkish officials allowing fighters to cross the border as well as explosives then used in terrorist attacks in Turkey.

    Among 27 people involved in the inquiry are Ilhami Bali, considered the mastermind of the suicide attack on a peaceful Kurdish demonstration at Ankara station October 10 in which 102 people were killed. (ANSAmed).
