Members of Turkish Parliament Human Rights Committee: Syrians Being Trained in Guerilla Warfare in Camps in Antioch

Jan 22, 2012

ANKARA, (SANA) – Members of the Human Rights Committee at the Turksih Parliament said on Saturday that there are special camps in Antioch areas in which individuals who fled Syria are staying and are being trained in guerrilla warfare.

Committee Member Refik R. Yilmaz said that the Turkish authorities didn't allow Committee members to visit one such camp where this training is taking place for security reasons, quoting local officials as saying that there are 131 Syrian men in this camp along with 41 of their wives and 91 of their children.

Yilmaz said that the Turkish government provided these Syrians with more support than what it provided to the victims of the earthquake that struck eastern Turkey, including financial support and communication and internet services, adding that officials from the British and US embassies in Ankara visit these camps periodically.

Yilmaz called on Syrians who fled to Turkey to not allow themselves to become tools in the conspiracy aiming to cause sectarian strife in Syria and the region.
