Turkey’s daily Zaman reports:

Two deputies from the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) have claimed that the government is against investigating Turkey’s role in sending toxic sarin gas which was used in an attack on civilians in Syria in 2013 and in which over 1,300 Syrians were killed.

CHP deputies Eren Erdem and Ali Şeker held a press conference in İstanbul on Wednesday [October 21] in which they claimed the investigation into allegations regarding Turkey’s involvement in the procurement of sarin gas which was used in the chemical attack on a civil population and delivered to the terrorist Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) to enable the attack was derailed.

Taking the floor first, Erdem stated that the Adana Chief Prosecutor’s Office launched an investigation into allegations that sarin was sent to Syria from Turkey via several businessmen. An indictment followed regarding the accusations targeting the government.

“The MKE [Turkish Mechanical and Chemical Industry Corporation] is also an actor that is mentioned in the investigation file. Here is the indictment. All the details about how sarin was procured in Turkey and delivered to the terrorists, along with audio recordings, are inside the file,” Erdem said while waving the file.

Erdem also noted that the prosecutor’s office conducted detailed technical surveillance and found that an al-Qaeda militant, Hayyam Kasap, acquired sarin, adding: “Wiretapped phone conversations reveal the process of procuring the gas at specific addresses as well as the process of procuring the rockets that would fire the capsules containing the toxic gas. However, despite such solid evidence there has been no arrest in the case. Thirteen individuals were arrested during the first stage of the investigation but were later released, refuting government claims that it is fighting terrorism,” Erdem noted.

Over 1,300 people were killed in the sarin gas attack in Ghouta and several other neighborhoods near the Syrian capital of Damascus, with the West quickly blaming the regime of Bashar al-Assad and Russia claiming it was a “false flag” operation aimed at making US military intervention in Syria possible.

Suburbs near Damascus were struck by rockets containing the toxic sarin gas in August 2013.

The purpose of the attack was allegedly to provoke a US military operation in Syria which would topple the Assad regime in line with the political agenda of then-Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his government. […]

    I’d like to see Bellingcat’s reaction to this news.

    🙂

    • I wish too. but the Jewish controlled news media and government are not going to tell us the truth, all these false flags and the fact that the “West” are helping ISIS, Al Nusra, Free Syrian Army and all those rats now changes the whole scenario. The Imperialist Criminal Judaic Mafia has been unmasked by President Putin and he can release videos taken from satellites on 9/11 to show the whole world who did these mass murder. The decadent Imperialist bully has no clothes.

      Obviously Russian spies operating in Turkey!

    We now know from the UN commissioned report on the Goutha bombing that the weapons “were fired by opposition to the Assad Regime” and we also have confirmation of the supply line emanating from Turkey, which CIA was liaising with and to Al Qaeda which the US was sponsoring to fight the Assad regime. One can connect the dots but unless the Turkish corrupt government is willing to pursue the truth and announce it to the world, we needn’t expect any truth or justice.

    • You still don’t know the truth and as usual, blame the west… Why is it when you folks in a foreign land find that an awful thing has been done unto another country you straight away blame the USA. You folks hate us so much but yet we spend billions of dollars aiding and rebuilding governments worldwide so that this shit doesn’t happen again. Giving you the freedoms to sound off about us for which you know nothing. Sometimes you have to sleep with the enemy to get results. I get so tired of being bashed around by you people in the east blaming covert operatives from my country and spewing your ignorance about things you cannot understand. ’nuff said…. I said my peace I will go away.’

    “Fisk noted that al Nusra Front members were caught in the possession of sarin. He stated that in his conversation with Syrian government officials, “they constantly referred to a 130-page Turkish indictment of ten al-Nusra men accused of transporting through southern Turkey what local police identified as chemical precursors for sarin. They were correct. The ringleader of the group, Haytham Qassab, appeared in court where a Turkish prosecutor demanded 25 years imprisonment, but he was later released ‘pending trial.’ They have all since disappeared.”

    Is this a big piece of evidence or another of the many small pieces ?
