Turkey begins deporting some of the 1,200 foreign jihadis in its custody

The Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, has issued a thinly veiled threat that Turkey could release jailed Islamic State fighters and send them to Europe, a day after the country began its controversial policy of deporting foreign jihadis in its custody.

“You should revise your stance toward Turkey, which at the moment holds so many Isis members in prison and at the same time controls those in Syria,” Erdoğan told European countries in remarks to reporters in Ankara on Tuesday.

Detained Islamic State suspects being repatriated even if stripped of national citizenship

Turkey says it has begun deporting foreign members of Islamic State held in custody, in a policy that risks diplomatic fallout with its European allies.

One US citizen had already been repatriated and seven German nationals were due to be flown home on 14 November, the interior ministry spokesperson İsmail Çataklı said on Monday. Preparations to deport two Irish, 11 French, and three Danish citizens were also under way, he said. The suspects were not immediately identified.

The greatest symbol of #totalitarianism fell, it was the Berlin Wall, opened by a people who were promised everything by #Capitalism and finally realised, after 30 long, hard years, it offered nothing but austerity, misery, junk food, low wages, high taxes and chains.
As the #world remembers, today we see the revival of the ghosts of the Wall in #Palestine #Kashmir #Cyprus #Ceuta #Turkey #Hungary, #Poland, and #Trump's love for the ideals of authoritarianism who want to build more walls

We are sad to report that Commander Ceren Güneş, a Turkish internationalist revolutionary, has been martyred in Rojava while defending Til Temir from Turkey’s invading jihadis.

As a Turk, she courageously rejected the fascist indoctrination from her Nation which told her Kurds were the enemy—and instead risked her life and died alongside them.

As a medical doctor, she was compelled to fight against ISIS (and thus Turkey) for the past 4 years, and was a true hero who we will never forget.

Turkey's Continued Care For ISIS Will End Badly


"Eight and a half years ago when the #war on #Syria began, #Turkey played the most important role. Weapons were smuggled from #Libya through Turkey to be delivered to ' #Syrian #rebels'. Over the years tens of thousands of foreign #Jihadis traveled through Turkey to join the various groups fighting against the Syrian government. After the Islamic State came into existence even more followed.

When the #US changed course and started to fight #ISIS it urged Turkey to clamp down on the stream of fresh fighters. Turkey did so to some extent after several ISIS bombings killed dozens within Turkey. But recent events show that Turkey still does not see ISIS as an adversary. Nor do ISIS leaders fear Turkish authorities."

150-strong committee meets to chart political settlement and negotiate end to civil war

Russia will today underscore its role in the political future of Syria as the 150-strong Syrian constitutional committee meets for the first time under UN auspices to chart a political settlement to end the eight-and-a-half-year civil war.

The meeting – a key proposal from Moscow – in Geneva is being overseen by the UN special envoy for Syria, Geir Pedersen, but has been fraught with difficulties, ranging from last-minute hiccups over the committee’s composition, wrangles over the opening ceremony and, crucially, fresh fighting in north-east Syria between the Syrian army and Turkish-backed troops.
