Poison recipe found in Al-Nusra militants’ houses in Turkey: Prosecutor
ANKARAA poison recipe was found in a house belonging to Jabhat al-Nusra militants in Ankara, according to an indictment prepared by the Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office’s Bureau of Crimes Investigation Committed against the Constitutional Order.
A document describing the preparation of poison involving fish, lizards, plants and oils was seized during a search conducted in the houses of the al-Nusra militants, as well as a recipe for making explosives, daily Cumhuriyet reported.
According to the report, the indictment sent to court said that the recipes would be used in “sensational attacks.”
“It has been evaluated that the mixture could be used in clash zones in Syria and in sensational attacks in Turkey,” the indictment stated, adding that the seized documents also had directions for the militants on how to use the poison.
The poison was very effective and mixed with blood very quickly, according to the indictment.
Meanwhile, it was determined that Abdullah Ammar Canöz, codenamed “Hanzala,” who went to Syria from Ankara in 2015 and then returned after getting injured, was also among the suspects.
It was also determined that two other suspects, Ayhan Gökçeöz and Mustafa Canöz, who previously fought alongside al-Nusra in Syria, had been tried over being members of al-Qaeda, but were released on condition of judicial control, before being acquitted.
The indictment stated that Canöz, Abdullah Ammar Canöz’s father, collected money for the jihadists and gave lectures in the Keçiören district of Ankara.
A document consisting of 26 pages entitled “Explosives” was found in Canöz’s house in the search conducted on July 28, 2015, according to the indictment.
Mustafa Canöz and Abdullah Ammar Canöz said that they didn’t know where the documents came from in their testimonies, adding that they didn’t work on developing explosives or poison.
