While you read this report, keep the fact that Turkey is a NATO ally firmly in mind.
Russian Lt. Gen. Sergey Rudskoy has issued a damning report explicitly stating that material support for the terrorist group al-Nusra, AKA al-Qaeda, is arriving directly from Turkey on a daily basis:
The never-ending flow of large trucks from Turkey carrying weapons and ammunition crosses the Turkish-Syrian border.
This constant feed of live forces and weapons allows terrorists from the Nusra Front to continue their provocative shelling and make advances on Syrian government forces, which diminishes [government military] activity against Islamic State terrorists in other areas,
Everyone knows, and our US partners admit that the biggest hot spots of active military operations are those parts of the Syrian Republic where the al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorists from the al-Nusra Front run rampant.
It is very clear that the terrorist group Jabhat al-Nusra, active in the regions of Aleppo and Idlib, is the main obstacle to expanding the ceasefire regime to northern areas of Syria,
By the sound of it, the situation in Syria would be far different if this constant stream of munitions and jihadists was not allowed to pass freely through Turkey.
Peace might be a lot closer to reality if the West forced their NATO ally to start working towards such an aim, instead of facilitating the continued destruction of the Syrian state.
Which raises the question, why is the West not doing more to stop Turkey’s open support for terrorism?
