As Turkey's AKP government declared its support to the US-British-French attack on Syria, Ankara-affiliated organisation also shows its commitment to imperialist powers. 

Turkish Islamist IHH "charity" organisation which has been operating in Syria and embedded with Turkish intel MİT agency, Turkis army and some Al-Qaeda-linked jihadist groups, supports US-British-French aggression against Syria, but criticises it due to its low profile.

"We are not relieved by today's missiles. There were too few hits and we think those [chemical] facilities have not been destroyed," Bülent Yıldırım said as quoted by pro-government Yeni Akit daily. 

Late Friday the US, UK, France launched the coordinated airstrike in Syria, under the pretext of the unsubstantiated international campaign about the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian town of Douma.

Yıldırım also claims that US-led coalition’s attack was a "sham fight."

The Turkish Foreign Ministry said on Saturday that Ankara is satisfied with the strikes launched by the United States, the United Kingdom and France against Syria. 

Yıldırım also said, IHH has welcomed those who were evacuated from Eastern Ghouta. The Syrian government says the Syrian Arab Army has eliminated the jihadist elements from the region. Buses carrying jihadists and their families had left the city en route to terrorist-held areas in northern Syria.

Progressive forces of Turkey have long been accusing IHH for their support to jihadist groups that operate in Syria, including Al Qaeda.

İHH was one of the main organisations of the Neo-Ottomanist initiative orchestrated by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his AKP government.  During the long-term devastating aggression towards Syria, IHH supplied jihadists organisations in Syria, with arms and materials via hundreds of trucks in transit through the Turkish-Syrian border.
