“The Turkish Armed Forces are preparing an offensive in the Azaz and Marea regions that have been the scenes of tough battles between the ISIL terrorists and its rival group of the Free Syrian Army,” Arac added.

“Also the Turkish Army carried out rocket attacks on the positions of Democratic Forces of Syria,” he went on to say.

Moscow calls for closing the Turkish borders to stop the flow of arms and terrorists to Syria

(SANA, Qabas/ Mazen) ~ Spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said on Thursday that Moscow calls for closing the Turkish-Syrian borders to stop the flow of arms and terrorists, reiterating the need for an international cooperation to combat terrorism in Syria.

Zakharova, at a weekly press conference, added “we call again to activate the international cooperation in combating terrorism in Syria, including Jabhat al-Nusra,” adding that there are no longer possibilities or time to call the gunmen in Syria as moderate opposition.

She affirmed the need to ensure the closure of the Turkish-Syrian borders as a main condition to stop supplying the extremists and terrorists with arms and ammunition and to stop the flow of gunmen who compensate the losses in the ranks of the terrorists.

Zakharova went on to say that the Russian Foreign Ministry rejects accusations that the Russian air force strike civilian sites in Idleb province, stressing that the Russian warplanes have not carried out any military missions there.

The Russian official added that Moscow is ready to cooperate more closely and effectively with Washington on Syria, pointing out that such cooperation is existed, but it could have been more effective and we are ready for that, denying that Russia neglected the calls for enhancing coordination of efforts with Washington.
