ISIS Militants Treated at Turkey Hospitals: Source

The ISIS militants have secretly received treatment at a hospital in Turkey’s southern city of Gaziantep near the Syrian border, says Russia’s Sputnik news agency quoting an unnamed source.

The source, who works as a medical worker, told exclusively to Sputnik news agency on Friday that the four injured Daesh terrorists were admitted to the Ersin Arslan regional hospital on May 5.

The treated militants are believed to have been among a group of Takfiri terrorists who recently tried to cross into Syria near Oguzeli in Gaziantep Province. Three militants were killed and a nearly a dozen wounded in clashes with Turkish forces there.

The source said he examined the terrorists, but “they had gunshot wounds.” “None of them received life-threatening injuries.”

“I think that the hospital's authorities don't want the public to find out that these people received medical treatment here,” the source said.

He also stated that doctors and staff at the Ersin Arslan hospital do not want to treat ISIS elements.

Reports say Turkey actively trains and arms the Takfiri terrorists operating in Syria and facilitates their safe passage into the war-torn Arab country. The Turkish government also stands accused of being involved in illegal oil trade with Daesh, but it strongly rejects the allegations.

"The source said he examined the terrorists, but they had gunshot wounds. None of them received life-threatening injuries."

In a relevant development on Friday, Turkish opposition lawmaker Eren Erdem said police have had extensive data on ISIS activities in Turkey, but did not act against the terrorists under pressure from the government in Ankara.

“Everything is in AKP’s hands, but they did not interfere,” the lawmaker of the Republican People's Party (CHP) said referring to the ruling Justice and Development Party founded by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

“It means AKP Party makes a distinction between terrorist organizations and turns a blind eye to IS (Daesh),” Erdem said.

ISIL terrorists are freely organized in Turkish cities of Kilis and Gaziantep, being allowed to pass the Turkish-Syrian frontier in both directions, he added.

The lawmaker also handed the documents containing what is thought to be proof of the allegations to Russia’s RT television network.

In another development on Friday, RT released a video in which Syrian intelligence forces said they have captured a haul of medical supplies near Aleppo that came from Turkey and was destined for ISIL terrorists in Mosul, Iraq, Press TV reported.
