Jihadists flock to Turkish camps to plan atrocities in Europe

Al-Qaeda groups operating in Syria have set up three bases in southern Turkey to train foreign fighters for terrorist attacks on the US and Europe, according to intelligence sources.

Details of the three camps were disclosed yesterday by Major-General Aviv Kochavi, the head of Israel’s military intelligence — confirming fears expressed by his counterparts in Britain and the US. James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence in the US, said that a Syrian affiliate of al-Qaeda, Jabhat al-Nusra, had “aspirations” to carry out attacks on American soil.

At a security conference in Tel Aviv, General Kochavi pointed out on a map of the region the three al-Qa’ida bases in southern Turkey, close to the Syrian border. They are in the provinces of Karaman, Osmaniye and Sanliurfa. NER

The Turkish-Syria border area is awash with fixers who introduce naive young Muslim men from Europe and the US to Syrian jihadists. General Kochavi said al-Qa’ida fighters from around the world were entering Syria every week, and that they posed a threat not just to that country but to the whole region and to Europe.
