Turkish govt allegedly arming ISIL 2014.6.28
by Nader Fekri, Press TV, Istanbul.
Earlier this week a new video emerged from Turkey showing a raid by soldiers on trucks belonging to the National Intelligence Organization which were bound for Syria. The footage has caused a scandal as the trucks were allegedly carrying arms for militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. A new video has emerged showing the moment that Turkish troops stopped a group of vehicles including trucks bound for Syria. Although the incident took place on the January 2013, the footage has only come to light this week. The incident caused uproar in Turkey. Country’s main opposition Republican People's Party or CHP says the country’s intelligence agency was using the trucks to secretly carry weapons for the Takfiri group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant or ISIL. Last month spying charges were brought against the 13 soldiers who carried out the search. The government has slammed the prosecutors and soldiers involved in the operation, arguing that both the vehicles and the personnel were protected by the National Intelligence Organisation's legal immunity. The Prime Minister has said that the case is an example of how members of what he called a “parallel gang” had infiltrated the judiciary and security forces. He was referring to the Hizmet movement of its former ally Fethullah Gulen. The government has claimed the trucks were carrying aid to Turkmens in Syria, but has not provided any further details. Country’s main opposition party the Republican People's Party has vowed to share more information regarding the Syria-bound vehicles. The arrest of 13 soldiers on charges of spying, is being seen by many as the latest salvo in the proxy war between the government and followers of Fethullah Gulen. The arrests could also be a warning to military and civilian individuals, to back off and not to interfere in government affairs.
