The leader of Turkey’s main opposition party, Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, lambasted the Erdoğan administration for supporting the Islamic State.

In particular, he revealed that, on 30 September 2014, Deputy Justice Minister Kenan İpek gave the Public Prosecutor of Adana the order to stop searching trucks going through the Syrian border. According to Mr. İpek the channeling of arms was overseen by the MIT (Turkish intelligence service).

Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu went on to say that, "The Islamic State is illegally selling oil and other products. It has offices in many cities throughout Turkey which are used to recruit fighters. Camps were set up for their training. Weapons shipments are dispatched by truck. It holds open meetings. Hundreds of people joined the Islamic State via the Turkish border. Yet Davutoğlu continues to demand evidence of all this. There is no need for official documents. Even [US Vice President] Biden avowed that Turkey supports the Islamic State. He did not apologize for what he had said, but for having revealed a secret meeting. The [Turkish] government explicitly supports the Islamic State. "
