Turkish police seizes truckful of weapons bound for Syria

+

The Turkish police got hold of a truck containing weapons and ammunitions, earmarked for armed opposition in Syria

The truck driver said that he was transporting the merchandise on behalf of the Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH), an association run by the Muslim Brotherhood of Turkey, of which Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is a member. The IHH promptly denied the accusation.

The Turkish press asserted that, during the second half of 2013, the government dispatched 47 tons of weaponry to Syria. National Defense Minister Ismet Yilmaz has refuted the allegations.
