Turkish opposition media accused on Friday Turkey’s President Erdogan of welcoming “ISIL members” in the presidential palace, stating that he received the family of the Syrian girl Bana Abed aka Baby of Aleppo Tweets, coming from the city of Aleppo.
The online daily said that Bana’s father belongs to the so-called ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL) terrorist group, and published a picture of the same person carrying a weapon as ISIL flag appears in the background.
The Turkish media said Bana and her family arrived from Aleppo last Monday, on board of the buses which evacuated civilians from the besieged neighborhoods of the city.
Bana and her mother, Fatima, an English school teacher, had opened a Twitter account during their alleged residence in Alqatergi neighborhood in eastern Aleppo.
The account tweets were talking about the suffering and bombing in Aleppo and were focusing on accusations against the Syrian army.
Several Facebook accounts reported that Bana had earlier claimed that her father was killed in Aleppo, while he is alive and living in Turkey and had photos with the militants along with the girl.
