Turkish NGO Running Weapons to Syria
Same organization linked to Free Gaza Flotilla Operation in 2010
Evidence is mounting that the IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation, the Islamic Turkish NGO that owned and operated three of the flotilla ships determined to breach Israel’s blockade of Gaza in 2010, may be involved with running weapons to Syria on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Commanders with the Free Syrian Army (FSA) have stated that vessels containing weapons docked in Syria were also registered to members of the IHH, who are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood.
A FSA militant Samar Srewel, who worked to organize the shipment explained: “It was clear from that second what was happening. The Muslim Brotherhood, through its ties in Turkey, was seizing control of this ship and the cargo. This is what they do. They buy influence with their money and guns.”
It is said that rebel groups with the strongest ties to the Muslim Brotherhood have access to the best equipment and weapons.
There are 130 members of the Syrian National council, a quarter of which have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
