TEHRAN (FNA)- Thousands of Turkish extremists have joined the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorists in Syria, a Turkish researcher disclosed.
“At least 12,000 Turkish nationals have joined the Takfiri terrorists in Syria to fight against the Damascus government,” Head of the Turkish Research Center 21 Century Umit Ozdaq told Taraf newspaper.
He noted that some of them have joined ISIL in Syria alone and some others with their family members.
Ozdaq also disclosed that 400 extremists from Northern Kazakhstan have joined the ISIL in Syria.
In November 2014, informed sources revealed that the Turkish Air has been transferring large groups of Takfiri terrorists from different countries to Syria and Iraq.
“The airliner transported 91 Takfiri Tajiks from Dushanbe to Istanbul at 21:10 on July 2 onboard flight 254,” a source, who asked to remain unnamed for fear of his life, told FNA at the time.
