Turkey transports weapons and ammunition to jihadist armed groups in Syria

On 3 June 2016, the Russian ministry of defence made public video images taken from a reconnaissance aircraft. The video shows long lines of lorries transporting ammunition and weapons from Turkey to armed groups in Idleb, Syria.

It is not yet possible to precisely identify these armed groups. At best we know that the West currently supports the Turkmen, the Kurds as well as former Arab members of the Free Syrian Army.  According to Russian and Syrian defence ministers, the majority of the armed individuals are members of the Al-Nusra Front, the Syrian branch of Al-Qaida.

On the same day, the Pentagon had itself dropped weapons and ammunition into Marea*. We do not know which armed group took these supplies.

The liberation of Idlib would allow Syria and Russia to free Alep, which would spell the end of plans to overthrow the Syrian republic and establish an Islamic fundamentalist government.
