Upon the capture of the strategic city of Morek in the Hama Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) discovered an ambulance that possessed a Turkish license place; it was stockpiled with weapons and ammunition. This is the second time a Turkish ambulance was discovered inside of Syria – the first being in the Armenian village of Kassab. The ambulance was discovered along with a multitude of telecommunication devices inside the dilapidated buildings of the captured city.

The Turkish Government has actively supported the rebels in Syria, providing them access to the vast border and supplies to continue their fight against the Syrian Arab Army and the YPG. The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has also benefitted from Turkish hospitality, as they continue to besiege the Kurdish village of Kobane (‘Ayn Al-‘Arab) in northern Aleppo, utilizing the border to launch mortar shells on YPG positions inside.

This is a British Number Plate, not a Turkish one. Also, the right side Steering Wheel is a dead giveaway.

That is a British Registration Number, not Turkish. Also the right hand drive gives it away.
