Amid news circulating online that the Turkish authorities were turning a blind eye on terrorists crossing its borders, stories have now emerged on how the Turkish army, in fact, helps injured ISIS militants reach their hospitals for treatment.
The injured members of the so-called Islamic State were being transferred to Turkey, the local sources, cited as 'independent and credible,' were quoted as saying.
Additional details have emerged on how the Turkish army has deliberately lighted up the night sky with the help of flares, making it easy for the militants to transfer the injured militants in the dark to Turkish hospitals.
"The Turkish army lit the sky by the help of flares to facilitate this transfer at night," the sources said as reported by Fars News Agency.
This comes as reports have suggested that Turkey ignored illegal border crossings conducted by the ISIS militants in order to attack Syrian-Kurdish border town of Kobani.
However, others reports said about 124 volunteers have managed to cross the Turkish border on Sunday to join the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) forces in the Syrian city of Kobani to fight against the deadly jihadist group, which aims to establish a caliphate in the area after having captured large swathes of land from Baghdad to Damascus.
On Sunday, the war between the Kurdish forces and the ISIS militants took the form of a dramatic street fight. The two forces are confronting each other in clashes with each side standing only 5 to 10 metre in distance, journalists from the scene have reported.
Authorities are, however, worried that terrorists will massacre massive number of people in Kobani, in case they manage to capture the city.
"They are still in control of 20% of the city and the YPG forces are planning to attack the terrorists in those regions," the agency quoted Owj Alan Issou, deputy head of the YPG in the Syrian town of Kobani, as saying.
"The documents carried by those terrorists who have been killed show that they are mostly foreigners and come from Chechnia, Turkey, Morocco, Egypt, Belgium and France to Syria and their passports have all been sealed in Turkey," Issou added.
