The Committee to Protect Journalists condemned a Turkish court’s conviction and sentencing of exiled journalist Can Dündar.

On December 23, the 14th Istanbul Court of Serious Crimes announced that Dündar, who lives in Germany, had been sentenced to 18 years and nine months in prison for an espionage conviction, and eight years and nine months for “Aiding a terrorist organization without being a member,” according to news reports.

Dündar, then chief editor of the opposition newspaper Cumhuriyet, was first arrested in November 2015 over his reporting on alleged M?T trucks being used to smuggle arms to rebel groups in Syria, as CPJ documented at the time.

Syrian rebel fighters prepare to deploy to Azerbaijan in sign of Turkey’s ambition : worldnews


They clearly do, they keep losing to Armenians.

They’re using the jihadis as cannon fodder anyhow. They did the same thing in the 1990s…they hired Pakistani, Afghani, and Chechen mujihandeen fighters to fight for them.
