ISIS has long planned to expand its so-called khalifate to Turkey.  Circumstances may have forced it to accelerate its migration:


Senior Islamic State members with access to “huge” amounts of money are in Turkey and plotting a comeback, an Iraqi spy chief has warned.

Lieutenant General Saad al-Allaq, head of Iraq’s Military Intelligence, claimed in an interview with CNN that Iraq has given Ankara dossiers on nine alleged leaders of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil), including top financiers for the terror group.

The general said senior Isil figures known as “emirs” have access to vast reserves of cash and were forming new cells in Turkey.
