Al Qaeda Terrorists Deployed along Turkey-Syria Border

TEHRAN (FNA)- Tens of al-Qaeda terrorists have been deployed along the Turkish border with Syria in a region in the vicinity of the city of Aleppo, a bastion of armed rebels and terrorist groups fighting the Damascus government, dispatches said on Monday.

According to FNA dispatches, members of the al-Qaeda-affiliated Jabhat al-Nasra (Victory Front) have been stationed in border areas North of Aleppo under the support of the Turkish troops.

Meantime, the Syrian army continued its operations in Sheikh Saeed neighborhood in Southern Aleppo and declared the area as "secured zone" after purging the remnants of terrorist groups from the area.

Turkey in cooperation with the US, Saudi Arabia and Qatar have been supporting terrorists and rebel groups in Syria and have practically brought a UN peace initiative into failure to bring President Assad's government into collapse.

Arab media sources revealed late last month, the Turkish government had asked Yemen to set up a military base for training Syrian terrorists and rebels.

According to a report by Barakish news website, the demand was raised by Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu during his visit to Yemen late October.

The report quoted an informed political source as saying to al-Share daily that Davutoglu has asked Yemeni officials to set up a training camp for the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA).

The source further revealed that the Turkish foreign minister has also conferred with the Yemeni officials about the purchase of Russian arms for the FSA.

The Turkish foreign ministry later rejected the accusations, saying that Davutoglu had not discussed aids to FSA during his visit to Yemen.
