One nurse at a private hospital in the coastal city of Mersin, Turkey- about a 260 mile hike from Aleppo, Syria- is so fed up and "ashamed" of treating ISIS jihadists, she finally contacted members of Parliament and the National Police Department.
According to the Taraf Daily, E.G. (as she is being identified as) said:
“We treat them, and they go on to decapitate people. I am sick of treating wounded ISIL militants.”And it's not just E.G. and the rest of her colleagues who are disgusted at having to help people who "chop off heads," others in Mersin and surrounding areas close to Syria are also troubled by having to treat wounded jihadists. Which means it's a rampant problem.
In the letter she wrote to Parliament and the Police Department, E.G. said she has been employed at a private hospital in Mersin for a long time. She said her hospital has treated many wounded Syrians so far, who have introduced themselves as “opposition members.”
However, she noted that she had found out that most of the Syrians recently admitted to the hospital were ISIL members. “I was extremely distressed about this. I am very sorry about this situation. I am disturbed by the fact that these people are being treated in our hospitals while our people are being held by them,” she wrote, according to Taraf's report.
ISIL has been holding 46 Turks, and three consulate staff who are not Turkish citizens, as hostages for the past three months.
Back in August, her hospital treated and ISIS commander:
“The ISIL commander named Muhammet Ali R. who was admitted to our hospital on Aug. 7 was treated at room number 323.
Many of his bodyguards kept watch around the hospital. Many other ISIL commanders like him and soldiers have been treated at our hospital, and returned to war after the completion of their treatment. I don't want to help these people. I want you to inspect these hospitals. And I am referring the owners of the hospital and its management to God.”
How do these injured militants cross back into Turkey from Syria, without the Turkish authorities knowing? It means the Turks are complicit.
