Who shipped Sarin gas materials to ISIS through Turkey in 2013? Most readers will be able to figure that one out before they’re done reading this…
Remember in late Summer 2013 when President Obama wanted to attack the Assad regime in Syria so badly? And then there was an attack on Syrian civilians that the White House swore was the Assad regime’s doing? And then the UN said that it wasn’t Assad, but the work of Syrian rebels (they hadn’t started calling themselves ISIS yet)?
After which everyone abruptly forgot about the whole thing..?
Well, according to rt.com, Islamic State terrorists in Syria received all the materials necessary to produce sarin gas via Turkey. This comes via Turkish MP Eren Erdem, who insisted there are grounds to believe a cover up has taken place.
“There is data in this indictment. Chemical weapon materials are being brought to Turkey and being put together in Syria in camps of ISIS which was known as Iraqi Al Qaeda during that time,” Erdem told RT.
Sarin gas is a military-grade chemical that was used in a notorious attack on Ghouta and several other neighborhoods near the Syrian capital of Damascus in 2013. The attacks were pinned on the Syrian leadership, who in turn agreed to get rid of all chemical weapons stockpiles under a UN-brokered deal amid an imminent threat of US intervention.
Addressing parliamentarians on Thursday, Erdem showed a copy of the criminal case number 2013/120 that was opened by the General Prosecutor’s Office in the city of Adana in southern Turkey.
The investigation revealed that a number of Turkish citizens took part in negotiations with Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) representatives on the supply of sarin gas. Pointing to evidence cited in the criminal case, he said that wiretapped phone conversations proved that an Al-Qaeda militant, Hayyam Kasap, acquired sarin.
