Topic: Syria accuses Turkey of 'direct aggression' alongside militants

Syria has accused Turkey of providing supporting fire and logistical help to enable "terrorist groups" to capture the Syrian city of Idlib and the strategic town of Jisr al-Shughour, state television said on Tuesday. "The terrorist groups' attacks on Idlib city and Jisr al-Shughour... were carried out by logistical and fire support from the Turkish army," Syrian television quoted the foreign ministry as saying. "This is direct Turkish aggression on Syria." Syria has recently stepped up its accusations that Turkey is aiding opposition fighters in its civil war and allowing thousands of foreign jihadi fighters into the country.
