A Turkish newspaper disclosed that at least 200 injured members of the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front were admitted and received medical treatment in a militant-owned hospital in Turkey near border with Syria in the years 2013 and 2014.

"The Dar al-Towhid hospital that is located in Gaziantep and is managed by the extremist groups, had been admitting only the wounded terrorists of Syria war during 2013 and 2014," Birgoun newspaper reported.

"The Turkish authorities were well award about the activities of the medical center, actually the hospital in the neighborhood where the security chief of Gaziantep lives," the paper added.

"A prescription of Turkish physicians for a wounded terrorist proves that the Turkish health ministry's officials knew about the treatment of anti-Syria militants in Dar al-Towhid medical center," the newspaper said.

A report said on Saturday that four injured ISIS Takfiri terrorists received treatment at the Ersin Arslan regional hospital in the Turkish city of Gaziantep.

Four wounded ISIS Takfiri terrorists were treated at the Ersin Arslan regional hospital, located in the Turkish city of Gaziantep, an unnamed source told Sputnik. They were admitted on May 5, the medical worker, who spoke on condition of anonymity, added.

One of them, named Bagur Ferhad, is an Afghan national born in 1993, the source said.

"I examined the ISIS fighters. They had gunshot wounds. None of them received life-threatening injuries," the medical worker detailed.

Earlier, Turkish forces opened fire when a group of foreign fighters tried to cross into Syria near Oğuzeli, a city in the Gaziantep province. Three militants were killed, 11 were injured. Four of them were brought to the Ersin Arslan regional hospital. No record of their stay has been made.

"I think that the hospital's authorities don't want the public to find out that these people received medical treatment here. Doctors and health workers working here don't want to treat the ISIS fighters.

Some of the doctors come from Kilis, a town that is daily shelled from Syrian territories under ISIS control," the source explained.

The Gaziantep province shares a 50-kilometer-long border with Syria. Its capital city, located less than 100 kilometers North of Aleppo, has long served as a staging post for those, who wanted to fight in the war-torn Arab country.

Turkey has long been suspected of offering medical assistance to the militants, who are fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Iraqi MP Mowaffak al-Rubaie told media as much last December. "There is evidence that some of these high value individuals of the ISIS when they get wounded in Iraq and Syria, they cross the border and get treated and operated on in Turkish hospitals," he lamented, FNA reported.
