REVEALED: Who created ISIS and imparted military training to Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi
Baghdad: Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria’s (ISIS), which has created unrest in Iraq, is the joint creation of the intelligence agencies of three countries - Israel, the United States and the United Kingdom. ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, who recently declared himself as the caliph of Muslims, took military training from the agencies of the three countries.
These explosive revelations were made by Edward Snowden, an ex-employee of the US National Security Agency (NSA), during an interview with Iranian news agency IRNA.
The United States supports the ISIS offensive with an aim to protect Israel by destabilising the region, reveals Sowden.
According to him, ISIS was brought into existence with a strategy entitled 'the hornet's nest' to "create a terrorist organization capable of centralising all extremist actions across the world".
The agencies of the three nations had given the secret plan to create ISIS a code name 'hornet's nest', which means beehive, said Snowden.
The United States wants to protect Israel by diverting the attention of latter's enemies to the newly-created group (ISIS). "The only solution for the protection of the Jewish state is to create an enemy near the borders of Islamic states," the NSA leaker told the news agency.
Quoting the records of the US Department of Defence, Snowden further reveals, "From February to December 2004, the US forces kept Al Baghdadi at Camp Bucca as a civilian intern. Later, he was released on the recommendation of a Combined Review and Release Board."
Confirming Snowden's revelations, it was reported last month that Kurdish Pishmarga fighters seized Israeli equipments and foodstuff from ISIS headquarters at Kirkuk and Mosul in Iraq.
Reports also suggest that injured ISIS insurgents in Syria are being treated at a Israeli hospital - Zif Hospital - in Safed city, an occupied territory of the country. A total of 283 militants have reportedly been treated in the hospital so far. Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu had once visited the hospital, said reports.
