Alwaght - Turkish National Intelligence Organization (MİT) forewarned that ISIS may conduct terrorist attacks inside Turkey
The MİT issued a warning for the country’s foreign ministry, police, and security forces that the ISIS terrorists, who have retreated from Syria’s border regions, are trying to cross into Turkey, and may be planning to conduct attacks inside Turkey.
The warning issue stated that ISIS militants could be working on armed or bombing attacks in the Turkish cities.
Also, the Turkish-language Sözcü newspaper wrote that the ISIS terrorists attempted to enter Turkey from Syria's Reqqa province on July 15 and carry out their terrorist acts in Qaziantep and Hatay cities in Turkey.
The warning by the MiT comes as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan admitted in early July that Ankara has directly supported terrorists in Syria.
"If it were not due to the support of Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar for the militants in Syria, they could not have achieved anything," Erdogan said on July 5.
Erdogan noted that Ankara, Riyadh, and Doha have supplied military and logistical backup for the terrorists in Syria.
Erdogan's statements came as his Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu denied any cooperation between Turkey and Saudi regime in supporting the terrorists in Syria.
Last month it has been reported that 12,000 Turkish forces are ready for military intervention in Syria under the pretext of creating a buffer zone to protect the Turkish borders against the threat of the foreign-backed terrorist groups.
