Turkey Again Claims Greece Harboring, Training Terrorists

ATHENS – Turkey’s pro-government newspaper The Daily Sabah, an outlet for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, repeated allegations that Greece is harboring dozens of terrorists with plans to bring down the administration.

That cited an anonymous high-level government official but no proof given other than the claims that included Greece has been training terrorists at a secret camp for years, no explanation why, if so, they haven’t been unleashed.

“Athens has turned into a safe haven for terrorists. There is everything ranging from the DHKP-C, the PKK and FETÖ (Gülenist Terror Group) and the location of all of them is known,” the official said.

The aim is that these groups could be used one day against Turkey, the official said. “An EU member country in the 21st-Century is openly feeding terrorists. The PKK is a terrorist group and designated as such by both the EU and the U.S,” the official told the newspaper.

The report said the alleged terrorists protest outside the Turkish Embassy in Athens every week and that the Greek government is aware of it and behind it but warned they could also turn against Greece.
