Sep 25, 2012

ANKARA, (SANA)- Criticism of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government's policy towards Syria from inside Turkey reached high levels with MPs filing complaints against the government officials over its violation of the Turkish constitution and laws in its dealing with Syria.

MP Hurşit Güneş from the Republican People's Party (CHP) filed to the Public Prosecution a complaint against the Turkish Prime Minister, Foreign Minister, Defense Minister and Interior Minister, in addition to the Governor of Iskenderun city.

Cumhuriyet newspaper quoted Güneş as saying in a press conference at the CHP HQ that the Turkish government is training gunmen in the Turkish territories, transferring weapons into Syria and providing all forms of aid and support to armed members fighting in Syria.

Güneş presented during the conference photos of Syrian opposition members carrying weapons in Istanbul and pictures of camps where gunmen are being trained in Turkey.

The MP stressed that the AKP government breached Article 92 of the Turkish constitution by deploying foreign military forces on Turkish territory without the Turkish Parliament's approval, saying that this deployment and the interference in the Syrian internal affairs in a way that endangers Turkey's security is a violation of the laws.

Turkish Admiral: Turkish Government Plays the Agent in the War against Syria

For his part, former commander of Turkish Naval Academy, Admiral Turker Erturk, stressed that the US and Israel are behind the events taking place in Syria, considering that the AKP government is playing the agent and tool in the immoral war launched against Syria.

In an article published by the Turkish Aydinlik newspaper, Adm. Erturk said the Turkish territories have turned into a terrorism base with the aim to create the conditions to pave the way for military intervention in Syria and undermine the coexistence through stirring sedition among the Syrian people.

He wondered at Turkey's help to the imperialists despite the obvious fact that fragmenting Syria would lead to the fragmenting of Turkey and inflaming the whole region.

Adm. Erturk said all the illegal practices and measures taken by the Turkish government are in the service of the "Great Middle East" project of the US and Israel.
