Al-Manar Website Uncovers an Internal Document for Al-Nusra Front:
How Turkey Recruits Fighters in Syria
The document is a ten page application form distributed by the Turkish authorities on Syrians inside Syria. Based on the information mentioned in the application, the individual is enlisted either in the ranks of a certain phalanx that fights in Syria, as an intelligence agent, or as a recruit for the intelligence agents that work inside Syria.
The source of this document is an injured Syrian who was in the ranks of the militants. His family took him to Europe for treatment after he was injured in his spinal cord, so he passed on this document to us to publish it and comment on its articles and points.
The injured Syrian said the Turkish authorities established a “Center for Civil Society and Democracy in Syria” as a civil facade to Al-Nusra Front and the militants its trains and arms in its lands before it sends them to Syria.
Turkey also relies on these forms to specify the individuals that it could take to military training camps in Turkey, as well as those who could form military and security cells inside Syria.
He added that “all the supervisors of this center are from the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood and they personally lead Al-Nusra Front.”
The injured Syrian further tells us that one person could fill more than one form, as he could fill forms for people he knows, or he could work on finding people that would fill their personal forms.
Moreover, Turkey presents for each individual, who could find 60 people to fill forms in Syria, a large sum of money.
The injured Syrian said that this form was put by the Turks and they are the ones who supervise the training program, while Qatar and Saudi Arabia fund the civil society center, in addition to cash money that come from France, America, and Germany.
The application form is consisted of 28 articles, and the following points are noticed in it:
1- Article number seven is related to military information and data from the Syrian Arab Army, and it is consisted of 13 sections.
2- Articles between nine and 23 are questions and information about the Syrian society.
3- Articles between 23 and 27 are security and intelligence questions.
4- Article 28 includes questions about the sectarian structure in each applicant’s region.
