Earlier in September, Süleyman Soylo, Minister of the Interior of Turkey, announced that an ISIS emir was arrested called Mahmoud Ozdon, in Turkey, in Derly, in the Turkish province of Giresun in northern Turkey. 

The Turkish minister mentioned that seizures taken from the Ozdon house contained plans to form a cell made up of 10 to 12 people with the aim of carrying out attacks in Turkey, as well as places of hidden ammunition, and plots to harm the Turkish economy, and plots to abduct Turkish politicians and statemen to be transferred into Syria.

When it was revealed that the ISIS emir was arrested six times in the last three years, the Turkish minister said that they had no tangible evidences against him, alleging that the Turkish judiciary was right to release him, saying : ''legally, they do their utmost, but when tangible evidences are not available, they can no longer hold prisoners, we define the organizational status of every person, but to get tangible evidence it should be clear, to know relations externally.''  

The Sky News quoted a report by the Turkish Paper Yuret, was released in September 2014, that contains a statement by opponent and external dissident Durdu Özbolat, an MP for the Republican People's Party, as saying that '' all extremist and radical organizations such as ISIS and the al-Nusra Front, among others, were all created by the Development and Justice Party, as they were trained on Turkish soil and moved freely''.

From his part, Refiq Eryilmaz, an MP for the Republican People's Party, confirmed in a statement to the Voice of America radio, that :'' Turkey never took the necessary measure to deter terrorists from crossing into Syria via the Turkish lands, to join the ISIS mercenaries'', and that '' Turkey turns a blind eye to the ISIS moves as a result to policies adopted by the Development and Justice Party, hostile to Syria and it's relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and support to the al-Nusra Front'', noting that Turkey is being used as logistic base, and that the Development and Justice Party just watches.  

In an interview with ''Homeland Security Today'' in late February it was revealed by Abu Mansur al-Maghribi, who was coordinating ties between Turkish Intelligence and ISIS the close relation that connects the two sides.
