Ankara, May 14: Thousands of IS associates have been routinely crossing into Syria aided by contacts in Turkey, phone calls tapped by Ankara security forces and handed to the media by opposition lawmaker Erem Erdem reveal. He accuses the government of a massive cover-up. Transcribed phone recordings belonging to Ilhami Bali, well known in Islamic State ranks and suspected of staging high-profile bomb attacks in Ankara and the mainly Kurdish border city of Suruc, detail the lack of control along the Syrian Turkish border. Pressured by the intertiol community to impose stricter border controls to stem the flood of militants into Syria, Ankara has been erecting walls at key crossing points, but to no avail as surveillance data from the Municipality of Ankara Provincial Security Department revealed. The transcripts of the recordings, according to RT online, were passed on to the media by Turkish opposition politician Eren Erdem of the Republican People’s Party (CHP), who was facing a witch-hunt from President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government over his repeated allegations of massive cover-up of IS activity on Turkish soil.
