100 ISIL terrorists reportedly enter 'Sometimes NATO Ally' Turkey for an offensive.
100 ISIL terrorists reportedly enter 'Sometimes NATO Ally' Turkey for an offensive. (FOT).
In a plan approved by ISIL leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, 100 militants were assigned to give military training to ISIL members and sympathizers in Turkey, the news agency Sputnik Türkiye reported on Tuesday.
According to the agency’s “reliable sources in Syria,” ISIL will use members in Turkey to carry out attacks in various cities if current policies are maintained by Turkey, which only two months ago took an offensive stance against the group by participating in air strikes with an international coalition, authorizing it to use important airbases.
The transfer of militants through the border provinces of Kilis and Gaziantep was executed with “great secrecy,” the report stated, adding that nine ISIL emirs (commanders) accompanied the militants as the terrorist group’s structure requires one emir for every 12 militants.
After crossing Turkey’s border from Syria in groups, 100 militants scattered to Adana, Adıyaman, Ankara, Diyarbakır, Gaziantep, İstanbul, İzmir, Kilis, Konya and Şanlıurfa. The militants were instructed to avoid unnecessary communication by phone. In addition to arms training, ISIL members and sympathizers in Turkey will also be taught to make bombs.
Sputnik Türkiye also claimed the group traveled with military equipment, including Kalashnikov rifles, Bixi machine guns, pistols with silencers, binoculars, rocket launchers, grenades, mines and explosives. The report also states that some members bought weapons from smugglers in Kilis.
Hmmm......One way to disrupt the coming elections. Read the full story here.
