Militant: Ankara Annexing Parts of Northern Syria to Turkey
TEHRAN (FNA)- A militant commander in Northern Syria disclosed that Ankara
has initiated a plan to purchase large swathes of land in Northern Aleppo to
annex them to Turkey.
The commander revealed that Turkish officials have formed a committee, that
also includes several local people, to satisfy and persuade civilians to
sell their buildings in return for a large amount of cash.
The committee is duty bound to persuade the owners of the lands in Northern
town of al-Bab that the buyers will only own the buildings and the lands
will remain under their ownership.
The committee has promised to give residential buildings in al-Rai region at
Turkey-Syria border to those people who sell their buildings to Turkish
buyers, the terrorist commander further disclosed.
He further added that Turkey has a detailed plan to annex vast parts of
Northern Syria to its soil, adding that Ankara intends to divide the regions
under the control of its affiliated forces into two regions affiliated to
Turkey's Kilis and Gaziantep regions to monitor and run tasks and affairs in
And in a later stage, the annexed regions will start developing economic
links with Turkey and start using Turkish lira in their trade transactions.
Syrian Ambassador to Russia Riyadh Haddad said earlier this month that
Turkey was planning to form two new terrorist groups in Syria.
Haddad said that Ankara intended to rebrand the ISIL and Al-Nusra Front
(also known as Fatah al-Sham Front or the Levant Liberation Board)

salaries to all fresh members of the new terrorist groups.
