The Canary previously reported that ‘Free Syrian Army’ (FSA) jihadists spearheading Turkey’s invasion of Syria have strong links with al-Qaeda. And now, sources from northern Syria have produced fresh evidence of links between Turkey and Daesh (Isis/Isil) – evidence that probably explains how Turkey was able to ‘take‘ the border town of Jarablus from Daesh without a fight.
Fake passports to Daesh militants
In April 2015, Turkish paper Today’s Zaman reported that “more than 100,000 fake Turkish passports” had been given to Daesh. (Note, this article is no longer available because, earlier this year, the Turkish government took over the newspaper.)
The Canary‘s Brad Hoff also reported on CIA-Gulf-Turkish arms supplies to Daesh, which were documented through the analysis of weapons serial numbers by the UK-based Conflict Armament Research.
Now, newly-sourced evidence published on 29 August by the Foreign Relations Commission of the Democratic Self-Administration of Rojava (in northern Syria) has unearthed documents such as passports, ID cards, visas, money transfers, among other items belonging to Daesh militants (killed or captured).
