Turkey declares that it has kidnapped one of the terrorists responsible for the attack on Reyhanlı

+

On 11 May 2013, two cars that had been wired, exploded in Turkey at Reyhanlı (which borders with Syria), causing 51 fatalities and leaving 140 people injured. The Turkish government immediately accused Syria of organizing the attack and the AKP organized pogroms in the city against Syrian immigrants.

However Syria denied any involvement and the documents of the Turkish police published by the RedHack hackers provided evidence that the operation had been mounted under a false flag by the Turkish government. Five years later, on 12 September 2018, the Turkish government showed on public TV a Turkish citizen, 34 years old, by the name of Yusuf Nazik (photo), who had allegedly been kidnapped at Latakia (Syria) by the Turkish Secret Services (MIT). This man declared that he had carried out the attack at Reyhanlı on behalf of the Syrian Secret Services.

RedHack is a Leninist-Marxist group established in 1990. It has been particularly active since 2012. It has attacked a number of Turkish and Israeli public web sites and has revealed a number of official documents. Until now all the documents that it has published have been held to be authentic and confront the Turkish Authorities with their lies and contradictions. When RedHack published the documents on the attack on Reyhanlı, the then Prime minister and today President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, accused it of “betrayal”. He categorized the group as “terrorist” and tried to dismantle it by a series of arrests. However nothing came of it.

On 11 September 2018 Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, president of Turkey, launched an international campaign against the anti-terrorist operation of the Syrian Arab Republic at Idleb. Notably, he published an article on this subject in the Wall Street Journal [1]. MIT’s announcement on Reyhanlı aims at taking up the defence of the Al-Qaeda terrorists at Idleb by trying to make us think that Syria too is turning to terrorism.
