"Islamic State": Turkey pushes alleged terrorist to Germany


A suspected IS supporter and her daughter have been flown to Germany. Since November, Turkey has increasingly pushed jihadists to their home countries.

Turkey has flown an alleged supporter of the terrorist militia "Islamic State" (IS) together with her daughter from Istanbul to Berlin. The Turkish Interior Ministry speaks of two "terrorist fighters" with German citizenship. More information - about the concrete allegations - did not give the authority.

According to German security circles, it is a German Eritrean and her five-year-old daughter. In 2014, she is said to have left Germany for Syria. She was arrested last October in Turkey. An arrest warrant against the wife is not available to the company. Whether investigations against it are taken, is still examined.

Turkey has been postponing people with alleged ties to terrorist organizations to their home countries for a few weeks now. On 9 October, she launched an offensive against the Kurdish militia YPG in the Syrian-Turkish border area, which she considers a terrorist organization. During the military offensive, according to official sources, ISIS supporters and their children were arrested, a total of 287 people.

Also 18 Germans are said to have been deported from Turkey

At the beginning of December, the Turkish Ministry of Interior reported that within three weeks, Turkey had sent 59 people back to their home countries suspected of having links with terrorist organizations. Among them are 26 US and European citizens, including many Germans. The state news agency Anadolu reported on Monday of a total of 71deleted foreign "terrorist fighters", including 18 Germans.

The information given by the Turkish government should be used with caution, because apparently children of deported IS fighters are also counted as terrorists. Thus, last Monday, Turkey reported the deportation of eleven "terrorist fighters" to France. According to the report, however, there were four wives of suspected jihadists and their seven children.
