TEHRAN (FNA)- One of the terrorist commanders in Northern Syria disclosed that Ankara officials are trying to purchase large areas of lands in Northern Aleppo to annex them to Turkey.
The commander revealed that Turkish officials have formed a committee, that also includes several local people, to satisfy and persuade civilians to sell their buildings in return for a large amount of cash.
The committee is duty bound to persuade the owners of the lands in Northern town of al-Bab that the buyers will only own the buildings and the lands will remain under their ownership.
The committee has promised to give residential buildings in al-Rai region at Turkey-Syria border to those people who sell their buildings to Turkish buyers, the terrorist commander further disclosed.
He further added that Turkey has a detailed plan to annex vast parts of Northern Syria to its soil, adding that Ankara intends to divide the regions under the control of its affiliated forces into two regions affiliated to Turkey’s Kilis and Gaziantep regions to monitor and run tasks and affairs in Northern Syria.
And in a later stage, the annexed regions will start developing economic links with Turkey and start using Turkish lira in their trade transactions.
Syrian Ambassador to Russia Riyadh Haddad said earlier this month that Turkey was planning to form two new terrorist groups in Syria.
Haddad said that Ankara intended to rebrand the ISIL and Al-Nusra Front (also known as Fatah al-Sham Front or the Levant Liberation Board) terrorists groups.
He added that Turkey vowed to give Turkish nationality and pay $400 monthly salaries to all fresh members of the new terrorist groups.
