Did Turkey help Gaza terrorists fire rockets at Israel?

A series of internal Turkish government emailsreleased by the Wikileaks site include what appear to be instructions to Palestinian terrorists on how to conceal their rockets from Israeli airstrikes.

The “AKP Email Archive” was released by the whistleblower website in the aftermath of the attempted military coup against the rule of the Islamist AKP party and its leader, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Erdogan has used the coup – which was promptly quashed in a single day – to purge all state and public institutions of his rivals.

Some commentators and even world leaders have already suggested the coup – or at least the purge lists – may have been pre-planned by Erdogan as a way to get rid of his opponents. Since rising to power the Islamist leader has worked hard to consolidate his power at all costs, jailing and suing journalists, opposition figures and anyone critical of him or his party.

Wikileaks appears to be using the leak as a means of hitting back at what it sees as Erdogan’s attacks on democracy.

In one of the emails, entitled “Our missile tactics in Palestine,” a sender from Turkey – who appears to be named Osman Kastamonulu, but who uses the name of a Turkish singer as his email address – emails “[email protected]” to advise on how to hide rockets from Israeli jets.

The email is dated August 2014, during the war between the IDF and Palestinian terrorists in Gaza, who rained thousands of rockets on Israeli civilian population centers.

“Cover missile with carpet 3 times and cover with double glazing(no air between glazing, deaerated) there must be cylindrical and round edges and agonic missile,” the email informs in broken English. “Our target is insulating and sound-absorbing missile and it mustn’t reflect sound and electromagnetic waves back”

In other email he writes: “Our missile must be painted with light blue or grey . So, israil radars won’t find missile with electromagnetic waves and especially we must paint our missile’s corners and so, we can do insulator missile and israil radars can’t find it.”

Intriguingly, both emails were forwarded to the Turkish President’s office and the head office of the AKP party.

Until relatively recently, much of Hamas’s military leadership were in fact based in Turkey, where the Islamist AKP government provided safe refuge and support.

But the possible involvement of individuals close to the Turkish government in aiding attempts by Hamas or other terrorist groups to fire missiles onto Israeli civilians will come as an embarrassing revelation at a time when Israel
