    Tentative support for Daesh may not have been very beneficial for Turkey, as the new Daesh magazine turned its threats to Turkish security forces.

    The Daesh terrorist group threatened Turkey, in the latest issue of its "Konstantiniyye" propaganda magazine published in Turkish.

    The jihadists have declared the Turkish military, police and security forces "infidels" and stressed that "fighting and killing them is pleasing to Allah." Turkish government officials and their relatives have previously been implicated in the smuggling of oil stolen by Daesh in Syria and Iraq by Israeli and Russian military intelligence.

    "Being in the army, the police, in countries such as Turkey, which is controlled by a diabolical system of idolatry — means to insult the sacred Islamic faith. Military and police in these countries are infidels, who must be fought and killed without mercy. They die infidels, and after their death they have no other way but to go to hell," the Daesh propaganda newsletter stated.

    Daesh also accused Turkey of supporting the Kurdish self-defense units YPG, despite waging war with the Kurds of the Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK).

    "Infidel Turkey, starting a war against [Daesh] that is at war with the PKK, thus with its own hands helps its enemy — the Kurds. These atheists seek to strengthen their position on Syrian territory, supported by coalition aircraft and Turkey," the statement said.

    The militants also threatened that Turkey is responsible for the blows dealt by the Turkish armed forces on positions Daesh in Syria and support the Syrian opposition, which includes the al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front.
