"In The Name of The Profit", is an exclusive and unprecedented footage filmed by the RT only ten days after the town of Shaddadi in Syrian Kurdistan was liberated from ISIL terrorists. documents prove cozy ties between ISIL, Turkey

The area surrounding the town is well known for its vast oil reserves and extraction activity that for months was reaped by ISIS command to generate revenue.

Following Kurdish soldiers around the destroyed and abandoned homes, RT Documentary found documents which showed a direct link between Turkey and ISIL insurgents operating in Syria.

The Takfiri paperwork included an entire pile of foreign passports with Turkish entry stamps, and booklets encouraging jihad against the Syrian government, printed in Turkey.

But most importantly, among piles of ISIL documents RT journalists discovered heaps of detailed invoices used by the terrorists to calculate and report their daily revenues from illegal smuggling activity.

“Of course, they wouldn’t get any weapons from Turkey if they didn’t ship them oil,” a teenage oil refinery worker told RT.

“They ... go with the oil and come back with the guns. And so they go, back and forth, back and forth.”

In addition, the documentary crew was also able to record exclusive interviews with locals – as well as captured ISIL recruits – who shed more light into the ISIL oil trade. According to witnesses on the ground, militants who came from Raqqa and Aleppo to pick up the oil constantly mentioned Turkey as the final destination.

One of the captured ISIL militants admitted that the terrorist group sells oil to Turkey. Others have admitted that crossing the border into the neighboring country proved to be relatively easy.

“Crossing the Syrian-Turkish border was also very easy. It was like crossing the street,” ISIL member from Saudi Arabia, Muhammed Ahmed Muhammed told RT.

“A man told me that the ISIL erased the borders. That there were no borders. I’d heard about that, but I couldn’t quite get it until I saw it myself.”

Ankara has always fiercely denied any involvement in an illegal oil trade with ISIL, and any contacts with the terror group whatsoever. RT has reached out to the Turkish Foreign Ministry for a specific comment on the documentary crew’s findings which Ankara has failed to provide thus far.

Besides collecting irrefutable proof of quite cozy relations between ISIL and Turkey, RT managed capture the mood of the populace who have lived and worked under ISIL yoke for months. They shared their untold stories of survival under the Takfiris' rule.
