Turkey detains 'spy' who 'helped British teens cross into Syria to join Islamic State'


Turkey has detained a 'spy' working for a country within the US-led coalition fighting against Islamic State, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, Turkish foreign minister, says

Turkey has arrested a person for helping three British girls enter Syria, while making the intriguing claim that he or she was working for a foreign intelligence agency.

The arrest was said to have been made a week ago, but the details were only released by the foreign minister, Mevlüt Çavuşoglu, in what appeared to be impromptu remarks in a television interview on Thursday.

“Do you know who the person who helped the girls turned out to be?” he said. “Someone who works for the intelligence service of a country that is part of the coalition.”

Officials subsequently said the intelligence service concerned was neither the US, a European country or an Arab nation, leading Turkish journalists to suggest it was a Canadian spy.

“We are aware of these reports. We do not comment on operational matters of national security,” said a spokesman for the Canadian foreign ministry.

“The person was working for the intelligence agency of a coalition country but is not a citizen of that country,” the Turkish foreign ministry said. “The person was not a Turkish citizen either.”

Another source said the individual was not employed by the Canadian intelligence services and was not a Canadian citizen.

The three girls, Shamima Begum, 15, Kadiza Sultana, 16, and Amira Abase, 15, were pupils at Bethnal Green Academy, and were friends of another girl who had been a pupil at the school who travelled to Syria to join Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).

They flew to Istanbul from Gatwick airport on February 17, travelling from there to the Turkish border, and on to Syria.

Turkey, which is resentful of claims that its intelligence services at least turned a blind eye to Isil recruiters operating on its territory, or even helped the jihadists, has accused Britain of not informing it early enough of the girls’ journey, so they could be stopped.

Turkey is not a coalition member, and has said that the Syria crisis, including the rise of Isil, cannot be solved without a comprehensive settlement that also sees President Bashar al-Assad removed from office.

Pro-government newspapers have picked up on Mr Çavuşoglu’s comments to suggest Canada had actively recruiting for Isil, though this was not the allegation the foreign minister made.

In fact, he gave no details of what the person’s relationship with the intelligence service was – whether a regular informant or an agent.

Mr Çavusoglu said he had briefed his British opposite number, Philip Hammond, on the case, and added that Mr Hammond had replied, “as usual”, without elaborating further.

A Foreign Office spokesman declined to comment, but said the three girls’ families had been informed of the arrest.

“There has been close cooperation between ourselves and the Turkish authorities, and the Foreign Secretary is in regular contact with his Turkish counterpart,” a spokesman said. “ As soon as the UK received this information it was acted upon appropriately.”

  1. "I wonder if the plan was to get these girls into Iraq, photograph them there with ISIS, then bring them back home to set them up as patsies for another false-flag terror attack?"
