A former senior counter-terrorism official in Turkey spoke to the Greek TV about ISIS and Erdogan. Ahmet Sait Yayla claimed that Erdogan was co-operating with ISIS until mid-2016, and that he staged the coup of summer 2016:
Up until the mid of 2016, there used to be a full co-operation between Erdogan and the Islamic State. And of course, it was sometimes a direct co-operation, sometimes an indirect co-operation through different mediums, maybe through the Turkish National Intelligence or some others as well.
Almost all explosives were produced by using materials which were transferred from Turkey. When I was in Turkey, I also witnessed that firsthand.
The coup was 100% organized by Erdogan and the Turkish National Intelligence. He used a staged coup to confiscate, get all the powers he needed.
A former senior counter-terrorism official in Turkey has blown the whistle on President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s deliberate sponsorship of the Islamic State (ISIS) as a geopolitical tool to expand Turkey’s regional influence and sideline his political opponents at home.
Ahmet Sait Yayla was Chief of the Counter-Terrorism and Operations Division of Turkish National Police between 2010 and 2012, before becoming Chief of the Public Order and Crime Prevention Division until 2014. Previously, he had worked in the Counter-Terrorism and Operations Division as a mid-level manager for his entire 20-year police tenure, before becoming Chief of Police in Ankara and Sanliurfa.
Terrorist group Islamic State earns millions of dollars selling oil on the black market in Turkey, Iraqi MP and former national security adviser, Mowaffak al Rubaie told RT. He also revealed that wounded terrorists are being treated in Turkish hospitals.
“In the last eight months ISIS has managed to sell ... $800 million dollars worth of oil on the black market of Turkey. This is Iraqi oil and Syrian oil, carried by trucks from Iraq, from Syria through the borders to Turkey and sold ...[at] less than 50 percent of the international oil price,” Mowaffak al Rubaie said in an interview with RT.
“Now this either get consumed inside, the crude is refined on Turkish territory by the Turkish refineries, and sold in the Turkish market. Or it goes to Jihan and then in the pipelines from Jihan to the Mediterranean and sold to the international market.”
“Money and dollars generated by selling Iraqi and Syrian oil on the Turkish black market is like the oxygen supply to ISIS and it’s operation,” he added. “Once you cut the oxygen then ISIS will suffocate.”
