A report by a Greek journalist claims that Turkey is preparing to send its fighters from East Syria to Kashmir. In his report titled ‘Erdogan sends mercenaries to Kashmir’ on Pentapostagama, Greek journalist Andreas Mountzouralias has provided details of the plans of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
This report propagates a theory that Turkey is planning to extend its influence to Muslims in South Asia on order to challenge Saudi Arabia’s dominance of the Islamic world.
Pakistan was the second country in Turkey’s plan as Ankara and Islamabad are preparing for a permanent presence of surface units and aircraft of the Pakistani Defense Ministry in the Turkish operation ‘Shield of the Mediterranean’. Erdogan hopes to plunder Greek lands and plots of land from Greece through this operation.
Akir Özkan Torunlar, Turkey’s Ambassador to New Delhi, refused these allegations and told India Today TV that “these reports are baseless and false”.
Pentapostagama used local sources to say that Abu Emsa, head of the brigade of Suleiman Shah, a gang that joined the Syrian National Army (SMO), 5 days ago told its members in Afrin that Turkey wishes to strengthen itself in Kashmir. Abu Emsa revealed that Turkish officers also demanded the commanders of other SMO gangs to list those who would like to go to Kashmir.
Abu Emsa told that those who are leaving his gang and would join the list will receive $2,000 in funding. He told members of his gang whom he met in Schiege that the region of Kashmir is as mountainous as Karabakh.
According to the reports in ANF, Local sources told that the Turkish state has been conducting this activity in Ezaz, Gerablus, Bap, Afrin and Idlib for a short time, thus choosing gangs which will be secretly transferred.
