Russian Envoy Assassin Visited Qatar Several Times



Turkish media disclosed that Mevlut Mert Altintas who gunned down the Russian ambassador to Ankara last week had visited Doha several times before his shocking crime.

Turkish daily quoted some sources in Ankara that Altintas paid several visits to the Arab country of Qatar after a failed military coup in Turkey.

The Turkish police have also reported that Altintas traveled to Qatar twice in August. He was also in Qatar in October and had a trip to Doha on Qatari airlines in November, according to the police.

The sources pointed out that the objective of Altintas’ trips to Qatar is still unknown but further investigations are underway.

The sources said interrogators would soon contact Qatari official to ask them for any information they might have in this regard to find out more about the people involved in this terror.

Another Turkish media which is affiliated to the Turkish government released the first report over Altintas’ visits to Qatar a couple of day ago but later took it off its website.

Results of preliminary investigations revealed by Turkish media have also showed that the Russian envoy’s killer had fought for Fatah al-Sham Front (formerly known as al-Nusra Front) terrorist group in Aleppo in 2015.
