Watch: ISIS announces new ‘branch’ in Turkey, threatens to carry out massacres
ISIS terror group has claimed to have established a new “province” in Turkey with a new video featuring a number of Turkish Muslim terrorists pledging allegiance to Abu Bakr al Baghdadi and threatening to carry out massacres in the country.
In April, ISIS released a new video showing the terror group leader al-Baghdadi, making the first time he is shown in a video since his July 2014 sermon at the Great Mosque in Mosul. He was holding a document named “Wilayat Turkey”.
Israeli media outlets reported on Tuesday that information provided by the Mossad and IDF intelligence helped foil at least 50 terror attacks planned by ISIS and Iran in 20 countries over the course of three years.
Twelve of these potentially catastrophic terror attacks thwarted by Israel’s Mossad were on Turkish soil.
Intelligence was transferred to Turkey despite diplomatic tensions between the countries, even during periods when Erdogan was publicly berating Israel.
