As part of an agreement between Turkey and Yemen, 160 Yemeni patients and 53 people accompanying them arrived in Turkey on Friday to receive medical treatment at a state hospital in Afyon province.

Meanwhile, official Iranian broadcast company Press TV claimed on the same day that a Turkish plane transported Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorists from Aleppo to Yemen.

Turkey has been fighting against ISIL in northern Syria for well over a hundred days now in an operation named Euphrates Shield.

However, up until this offensive against ISIL, Turkey was widely accused of turning a blind eye to ISIL in order to topple embattled Syrian president Bashar al Assad.

Press TV based its argument on a story published on Yemeni news site Al-Masirah. According to that report, Turkey allegedly evacuated 150 terrorists fighting in Syria after the regime took control of Aleppo.
