The Swedish Nordic Monitor received confidential documents, which include a comprehensive assessment of the Turkish Military Intelligence sealed on 15 July 2016, and sent to the General Command of the Gendarmerie for distribution to the relevant sections, including the Operations Branch and the General Intelligence Service.
The documents exposed Daesh mercenaries' aid to Erdogan's regime in the implementation of the coup d'état in the summer of 2016, as his elements launched a series of terrorist operations to draw the attention of military commanders, which opened the way to the Turkish President Erdogan to weave the threads of his conspiracy.
The documents indicate that 4,671 Turkish citizens joined 69 terrorist gangs that are fighting in Syria, according to documents that indicated that the process of sending the Turks to war in the Arab country has begun since July 2016.
Five terrorist gangs are active in Turkey
The documents also show that five terrorist groups are active in Turkey; Murad Gizinlar in Ankara, Biancuk (Abu Hanzala) in Istanbul, Mustafa Dukumagi in the south-eastern canton of Adiyaman, Haidar Kirikan in the central province of Konya, as well as the group of Khader Ilibulu Noureddin Moussalli Khan.
The documents indicate that the Gendarmerie identified 1,443 Turks who joined Daesh terrorist organization and went to fight in Syria, while the Police Service - the Main Law Enforcement Agency in Turkey found that 3,228 Turkish citizens crossed into Syria illegally to fight alongside the extremist groups, according to documents.
According to the details provided by the Military Intelligence, 1,407 Turkish Daesh mercenaries identified by the Gendarmerie, including 83% of them, or 1,171 men, and 17%, or 256 women.
The documents and figures show that Konya was at the top of the list of the most terrorist-exporting provinces with 135 people, followed by Ankara with 120, Adiyaman with 57, Diyar Bakr with 57, Kerkali with 48, Gaziantep with 43, Kayseri with 42, and Adana with 40, Bengal with 37, and Malatya with 36 terrorists.
The Intelligence's document indicates that the leader of Daesh, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, issued an order in June 2016 about the necessity to appoint fighters of Iraqi origin to work in Turkey instead of the Syrians, and identified the areas of the return of elements of the terrorist organization to Turkey.
Determining the village of Arab Azza as a center for the return of the mercenaries to Turkey
The village of Arab Azza, about 30 km west of the Syrian border town of Jarablus has been identified as a center for the return of the organization's elements to Turkey, while Daesh mercenaries deployed digging equipment of tunnels in Jarablus and began drilling operations to open a tunnel in early 2016.
According to the documents, Daesh mercenaries use a different tactic to smuggle fighters into Turkey in the border region of Kills-Azaz by persuading Turkish businessmen to participate in a fake trade and to include the names of the organization's gunmen to be smuggled as recipients of goods listed in the bill of lading.
The documents indicate that Daesh was seeking to target Shiite mosques in Turkey to provoke a Sunni-Shiite conflict, and determined the north-west canton of Bursa to carry out a terrorist operation, while the mercenaries formed teams of four and eight people in the province of Gaziantep in Turkey, in order to carry out an operation against Syrian anti-mercenaries journalists, as well as planning to carry out terrorist operations in Ankara, Istanbul and Izmir against the Kurds.
