Turkish Advisers within Ranks of Militant Groups in Syria
Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova announced that Turkey’s military advisers are reportedly ruling the gunmen near Aleppo in Syria.
Turkey is known to be among the main supporters of the terrorist groups operating in Syria, with reports saying that Ankara actively trains and arms the Takfiri terrorists there and facilitates their safe passage into the violence-wracked state.
Since the start of bloody war in Syria, thousands of Takfiri terrorists have crossed the Turkish borders to join their comrades in Syrian provinces to fight against President Bashar al-Assad government as well as the Syrian people.
Syrian diplomats have frequently stressed that the Turkish regime supports the militant groups, providing them with weapons and ammunition.
Syria’s ambassador to the United Nations (UN) accused Ankara of delivering weapons to the Takfiri terrorists in the Arab country in convoys made to look as if they are carrying humanitarian aid.
Speaking at a UN Security Council session in late May, Bashar al-Jaafari said Turkey exploited humanitarian corridors as transit routes for thousands of foreign-backed militants and provided weapons to the terrorists.
More over, a Turkish newspaper disclosed that at least 200 injured members of the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front were admitted and received medical treatment in a militant-owned hospital in Turkey near border with Syria in the years 2013 and 2014.
“The Dar al-Towhid hospital that is located in Gaziantep and is managed by the extremist groups, had been admitting only the wounded terrorists of Syria war during 2013 and 2014,” Birgoun newspaper reported.
“The Turkish authorities were well award about the activities of the medical center, actually the hospital in the neighborhood where the security chief of Gaziantep lives,” the paper added.
“A prescription of Turkish physicians for a wounded terrorist proves that the Turkish health ministry’s officials knew about the treatment of anti-Syria militants in Dar al-Towhid medical center,” the newspaper said.
Syria has been gripped by foreign-sponsored militancy since March 2011. United Nations Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura estimates that over 400,000 people have been killed in the Syrian crisis.
