    The foreign spy arrested on suspicion of helping three British schoolgirls travel to Syria to join the Islamic State was working for the Canadian intelligence service, it has been reported.

    Turkish foreign minister Mehmet Cavusoglu earlier said the suspect works for the intelligence agency of a country that is part of the US-led coalition fighting ISIS but did not identify the country, saying only that it was not the United States or a member of the European Union.


    However, an Istanbul-based newspaper has reported that the spy was working for the Canadian government.

    A man has been arrested for allegedly helping three British schoolgirls - Shamima Begum, Amira Abase, both 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16 (above) - cross into Syria to become Jihadi brides for Islamic State militants

    The girls were pictured going through security at Gatwick Airport last month, dressed in Western clothes

    Dailysabah.com cited 'sources close to the government' as the basis of the assertion.
    Mr Cavusoglu, who was interviewed on Turkish channel A Haber TV, said he had shared the information with his British counterpart - Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond.

    Shamima Begum, Amira Abase, both 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16, are thought to have reached the terror group's de facto capital Raqqa after fleeing the UK to join a friend last month.


    Britain's Foreign Office had no immediate comment and a spokesman for the Metropolitan police said he had no information.


    It emerged earlier this week that the three girls had paid for their flights out of the UK after stealing jewellery from their family.
    Police discovered they paid the £1,000 cost of their flights from Gatwick airport to Istanbul in cash.

    Before they went missing, the girls are believed to have communicated with 20-year-old Aqsa Mahmood, a notorious jihadi who left Glasgow for Syria last year.

    The former medical student has become the online contact of choice for those wanting to travel to Syria and marry a militant fighter.

    One of the girls, Shamima Begum, used her Twitter account to try to contact her directly, asking for her to open a private line of communication.

    Friends suspect the girls were in touch with Mahmood and Islamic State recruiters via their mobile phones in the weeks before Christmas.

    The girls were pictured going through security at Gatwick Airport last month, dressed in Western clothes.

    They were later seen on CCTV in Turkey, dressed in burkas and waiting for a bus to take them to the border with Syria.
    They are now believed to be in Raqqa, Islamic State’s stronghold and scene of some of its most barbaric atrocities.

    It is thought they were staying with a British girl – believed to be a pupil from their school who went missing in December and is believed to have joined ISIS.

    The 15-year-old student, the first to disappear from Bethnal Green Academy in east London, has not been identified by the authorities.

    Mark Rowley, who has overall responsibility for police counter terrorism, said the three girls would not be arrested for terrorist offences if they returned to the UK.

    ‘We have no evidence in this case that any of the three girls are responsible for any terrorist offences,’ he said.

    Over the weekend it also emerged that letters from Scotland Yard to the girls' families – explaining that the pupils would be part of the inquiry into their friend's disappearance – had been given to the schoolgirls rather than their parents.

    Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe admitted that ‘with the benefit of hindsight’ officers should have communicated directly with the families.
    But he said parents had a responsibility to come forward if their teenagers betrayed any interest in extremist ideology.

    However, the families refused to accept any responsibility for the teenagers' actions when they appeared before a committee of MPs earlier this week.

    Instead, they spent spent more than an hour castigating police over what they claimed was a failure to inform of their children's potential radicalisation.

    They were led by their lawyer Tasnime Akunjee, once the representative of a close associate of the Woolwich killers, who repeatedly demanded an apology.

    He accused Scotland Yard of a catalogue of errors in its handling of the disappearance of the trio in February and their close friend in December.

    Canada silent on alleged CSIS links to man helping girls go to Syria

    The Canadian embassy in Jordan, where Stephen Harper posted the former head of his security detail as ambassador, is at the centre of new allegations linking Canada to a suspect arrested by Turkish authorities and accused of helping British schoolgirls join Islamic State militants in Syria.
    Mr. Harper appointed Bruno Saccomani, a former RCMP officer, instead of a career diplomat to the job of envoy to Jordan in 2013. His previous job was as head of the Prime Minister’s Protection Detail.

    The Canadian government, meanwhile, remained silent Friday as Turkey’s media published a second day of stories, citing anonymous Turkish security sources, that purport to sketch out Canada’s connection to a man now being held by Ankara on suspicion of smuggling three London girls into Syria last month.
    The picture that emerges is of a human smuggler who was allegedly trying to trade information about people he ferried to Syria to a contact at the Canadian embassy in Jordan in exchange for help immigrating to Canada. Turkish media identified him as Mohammed al-Rashed.
    Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, whose government is under severe pressure to restrict the flow of jihadists through Turkey to Islamic State forces in Syria, is now saying the suspect is a Syrian citizen and is sticking to his allegation this man was in the employ of a foreign intelligence service from a country in the U.S.-led coalition fighting Islamic State extremists. He still won’t name the country in question but says it’s not the United States or a nation in the European Union.
    Turkish media, citing security sources, continue to report that the foreign agency in question is the Canadian Security Intelligence Service.
    The Canadian government, which has not categorically denied a link to the suspect and said only that he’s not a Canadian citizen or CSIS employee, refused to address the latest reports from Turkey.
    “I have no further comments to add beyond [Thursday’s] statement,” Jean-Christophe de Le Rue, spokesman for Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney, said.
    A Haber, a pro-government news network based in Istanbul, released a video allegedly showing the suspect in the act of ferrying Kadiza Sultana, Shamima Begum and Amira Abase, to Syria last month. The three British girls are believed to have arrived at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport in mid-February.
    The footage, apparently recorded by the suspect using a hidden camera, shows the Syrian greeting the girls in Gaziantep as they leave a taxicab. According to Sabah, a Turkish newspaper, the suspect asks for the girls’ names, instructs them to take their baggage and not to leave anything behind. He informs the girls that they will be in Syria within one hour.
    The footage, captured by a hidden camera by Mr. al-Rashed, recorded in Gaziantep, a Turkish province bordering with Syria, shows Mr. al-Rashed welcoming the girls as they exit a taxicab. He tells them they will be in Syria “within an hour,” as they carry their bags to another vehicle and adds that he will not go with them.
    The A Haber report, recounted in Turkey’s Sabah newspaper, says the suspect is a 28-year-old dentist who fled the civil war in Syria for Jordan and tried to claim refugee status in another country before attracting the interest of the Canadian embassy in Jordan.
    The Turkish network, citing security sources, said the suspect contacted a Canadian embassy official in Jordan called “Matt.” It also reported that Turkish authorities believe Matt was in fact a British spy.
    The Istanbul-based Star newspaper published what it said were excerpts from Mr. al-Rashed’s interrogation by Turkish security services.
    The newspaper said he told police he was working for Canadian intelligence and hoped to win Canadian citizenship by helping Canada. He said he contacted Canadian intelligence agents at the Jordan embassy and told them on Feb. 21 how he’d smuggled the British girls to Syria.
    The Star reported documents containing alleged correspondence with CSIS were discovered on Mr. al-Rashed’s computer, as were photographs of the passports of 20 people, including the three British schoolgirls, and surreptitious recordings of would-be jihadists being ferried to Syria.
    Former senior CSIS agent Ray Boisvert said he imagines CSIS is investigating right now to determine whether there are Canadian links. “I think CSIS is looking into it. That is the only thing I can assume,” he said, adding he has no inside knowledge on this file.
    “They may not be saying much right now because sometimes operations can run pretty deep,” Mr. Boisvert said. “This thing could be five times removed from someone under CSIS direction.”
    He said, however, that collecting relevant intelligence is exactly what CSIS is supposed to do.
    “If CSIS is involved in this, that is the new reality. That is what they should be doing. They should be running sources and agents in parts of the world where there are Canadian interests at work.”
    Under Canadian law, CSIS plays a gatekeeper function in reviewing the files of thousands of prospective immigrants and would-be citizens each year – particularly files involving people hailing from conflict zones.
    CSIS officers, in Ottawa and abroad, double-check whether such individuals represent a security threat. Assessments are then forwarded to the immigration bureaucracy. On several occasions, the spy service has been publicly accused of squeezing intelligence information from would-be immigrants – by allegedly holding out favourable recommendation to immigration authorities as a reward.
    For example, a Kurdish man hailing from Turkey formally complained about such practices to a United Nations body last year, alleging that in the 1990s CSIS was offering immigration favours in return for information about the Kurdish Workers’ Party, which is known as the PKK.
    “CSIS told [Suleyman] Goven that if he gave them the names of PKK members from the Kurdish community in Toronto, they would recommend that [Citizenship and Immigration Canada] grant his application for permanent residence,” the 2014 complaint reads.
    Mr. Goven got his status in Canada after waging a protracted legal battle complaining of “excessive delay in processing” and “pressure to act as an informer for CSIS” in several legal forums.

    Turkey is doing what Pakistan used to do with Afghanistan, i.e. serving as transit camp for jehadies into Syria and Iraq, providing in and out facilities to murderes and mercenaries. Turkey will pay more than what Pakistan is paying as result of this Khidmat-e-Jehad

    That is why are are going in there, to have Sex jehad which is very famous among Jehadies in Syria and Iraq. Shame on those who are supporting and encouraging this practice, just imagine about those parents who found their young girls run away, how they would be facing the society how many questions they have to face due to this stupid idea
