Syria Underlines Support for Kurdish Forces Fighting against Terrorists in Aleppo Province
“The military gains in the Northern parts of Syria are the joint victories of the Syrian army and the Kurdish fighters,” al-Jaafari said, addressing the UN General Assembly meeting.
He blasted the Turkish government for supporting the terrorist groups in Northern Aleppo province, and said, “The hostile acts of Ankara made, even, the countries which were supporting Turkey to express concern over its policy.”
Al-Jaafari pointed to the chemical weapons used by the terrorist groups in Syria, and said, “Turkey has allowed terrorists to transfer the deadly Sarin gas to the Syrian territories.”
Al-Jaafari’s remarks came as the Turkish army has increased its military buildup behind the borders with Syria.
Earlier today, the Turkish media disclosed that the Turkish Army, worried about the imminent collapse of terrorist-held lands North of Syria, has sent more military equipment and troops to one of the Turkish border cities near Syria following the recent victories of the Syrian army and Kurdish fighters against the militants in the provinces of Aleppo and Lattakia.
The city of Kilis in the Southern part of Turkey near the border with Syria and the Gaziantep-Aleppo highway has been the destination of a growing number of Turkish army troops and their modern arms and military equipment, the Turkish language news agency, Duqan reported.
Under the pretext of fight against the ISIL, Turkey and Saudi Arabia have announced their readiness to dispatch ground forces to Syria.
The Turkish deputy prime minister announced that his country is resolved to establish a buffer zone at Turkey-Syria border with the length of 10 kilometers, including the Syria’s Northern city of Azaz in the buffer zone.
A report said on Tuesday that a Tal Rifat-bound column of fresh militants recruited and trained in Turkey was targeted by the Syrian and Russian warplanes on a road near the newly-liberated city in the Northern part of Aleppo, adding that 300 terrorists were killed in the air raid.
The Russian and Syrian fighter jets, in a joint operation, tracked and targeted an over 300-member convoy of fresh militants, who had earlier crossed the Syria-Turkey border to join the terrorist groups operating in Tal Rifat and its surroundings.
The militants column was on a road connecting Azaz and Tal Rifat.
In addition to the killing and wounding of almost the entire members of the column, the terrorists’ vehicles and weapons were also destroyed in the air raid.
Reports said earlier on Tuesday that the Turkish Army’s artillery units pounded the strategic city of Tel Rifat North of Syria’s Aleppo province that was taken back by the Kurdish fighters from the terrorists last night.
