Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has confirmed that French terror suspect Hayat Boumeddiene entered Turkey on Jan. 2 and crossed into Syria on Jan. 8. A source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry claimed the statement constitutes an official confession that Turkey is still a main route for foreign terrorists infiltrating Syria and returning to their countries, in blatant violation of UN Security Council resolutions.
Boumeddiene is the wife of suspected terrorist Amedi Coulibaly, who was killed after taking hostages in a Paris supermarket. Boumeddiene is wanted by French authorities who have described her as “armed and dangerous.”
The source said that the ease with which terrorists move through Turkish territory reaffirms the involvement of the Turkish government with the armed terrorist groups, making Turkey a direct partner in shedding the blood of innocents – in Syria and globally.
The Foreign Ministry said Syria has called upon the international community to take actions to put an end to the destructive Turkish policy, which is directly responsible for the growth of takfiri terrorist activity in the region.
The source also called for putting into effect all mechanisms provided by the UN Security Council resolutions to stop the support of terrorism and the phenomenon of foreign fighters.
