Turkish soldiers along with terrorists with the cry “Allahu Akbar” in the offensive against the Syrian government army in the Idlib area, in Syria. A video spreading on the web is likely to become a huge embarrassment, not only for Turkey, which has never hidden its support for Islamic extremists but above all for the United States and NATO, who expressed support and solidarity in Ankara after a Syrian bombing of the jihadists had killed 36 Turkish soldiers. The link between Ankara and Islamist groups has been known for some time, ever since ISIS jihadists were treated in Turkish hospitals. But now the situation has reached a level of such obviousness which is very difficult to justify.
According to Catholic University Italian researcher, Giovanni Giacalone, the U.S. Department of State and NATO have expressed solidarity with Turkey in relation to the military casualties that fell under the Syrian bombing of the jihadists, but both actors in question appear to ignore two obvious and hugely important facts. Turkey intervened militarily on the territory of a sovereign state by attacking government forces. It is now clear that Ankara intervened in Syrian territory in support of Islamic terrorists, many of whom are linked to Hayyat Tahrir al-Sham, the Syrian rib of Al Qaeda. By supporting Turkey, NATO and the United States automatically find themselves supporting those same jihadists that the “Coalition” said it wanted to fight. An extremely embarrassing situation, considering that until recently Al Qaeda was the “number one enemy” of the West.
