Turkey’will Ship’ Its Own jihadist Offenders home amid anger with Europe

Last updated on November 2, 2019

Turkey will send members of this so-called Islamic State (IS) group it’s seized back to their home states, Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu stated on Saturday.

He declared Europe was departing Turkey to take care of the offenders alone.

“That isn’t acceptable for us. Additionally, it is reckless,” he explained.

“We’ll send the caught Daesh associates to their nations,” Soylu told reporters, with the following name for IS.

Turkey has seized some escaped jihadists throughout the previous month after it established a military incursion in northeastern Syria.

The coverage of many European nations thus far, especially France and Britain, was to deny taking back fighters along with their wives – with exceptions made for kids.

The reluctance believed in Europe could result from the stress that a lot of the proof against some other returning fighters might not stand up in court, a range of specialists have indicated.

Kurdish officials have stated nearly 800 people fled a jihadist captive camp following the Turkish offensive to northern Syria targeted at the region.

European forces have started talks with Iraqi officials to allow jihadists being held at Syria to face trial in Iraq – but advancement seemed slow.
