Turkish intelligence service carry "secrets" inside trucks
After saving a suspicious truck from the prosecutors and gendarmerie on Jan. 1, when the government called it "a state secret," MIT this time hit the headlines with seven semis reported to be laden with weapons.
Turkey's National Intelligence Organization (MIT), was again caught transporting weapons to El-Qaide related salafist groups like ISIL, Japhat Al Nusra in Syria.
On 19 th January, the prosecutor of Adana Anti-Terror Court instructed the Adana Provincial Gendarmerie Command to stop and search three trucks .
Around noon, a security detail of 200 personnel stopped the 3 trucks with a car in which there were two MIT officials in Adana.
After explosives-detecting dogs gave appropriate signals, the prosecutor allowed steel containers in the trucks to be opened.
In six metal crates, concealed among medical supplies, were mortar shells, rockets and various other ammunition.
While the trucks were being moved to nearby Seyhan Town Gendarmerie Command for a detailed search, the trucks were blocked by MIT personnel from their Adana regional office.
At that point, the governor, Adana Huseyin Avni Cos, the provincial police chief and the MIT regional director arrived at the scene accompanied by 200 policemen.
Then district governor and the Adana Provincial Gendarmerie Command, warning that the MIT was attached directly to the prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
Then vehicles were released under the governor's instructions and continued on their way toward Syria.
When the first three suspicious trucks were stopped, MIT personnel tried to save the other four trucks from searches but they, too, were stopped by the gendarmerie.
The head prosecutor of the Anti-Terror Court said they could not give a list of items found because the investigation was confidential.
Peace and Democracy Party co chair Selahattin Demirtaş tuesday at parliament asked to the government:
"If the trucks were loaded with aid, they would trumpet them with celebrations and with live broadcasts. Would the Justice and Development Party (AKP) carry aid to Syrians in a hidden way?"
BDP co-chair Demirtaş also underlined that "It is Turkey's support that created al-Qaeda,"
