The leader of the group “Jabhat al-Nusra”, the Emir, Abu Muhammad al-Julani, in an interview aired by Arab TV channel Orient News, has revealed Turkey’s plans to create so-called “security zone” in Northern Syria. The leader of the militants, whose face was hidden from cameras, directly accused Erdogan’s regime of creating a buffer zone ” which will not weaken, but will strengthen ISIS”. This was reported by “Russian spring”.
“Turkey will allow ISIS to further expand its influence in the areas around the border”, – said the leader of the militants.
Ankara, according to Abu Muhammed, “tends to have preference to attack Kurdish forces, and chooses to not fight with ISIS in Northern Syria”.
ISIS is an international terrorist group who, in the summer of 2014, proclaimed the establishment of a Caliphate on the captured territories of Syria and Iraq. Their activity on the territory of Russia is prohibited. The ISIL militants regularly execute hostages and alleged spies for Syria, Israel* and Egypt. Accurate information about the number of militants of the organization quotes their number at an estimated 50 – 200 thousand.
Terrorist group “Jabhat al-Nusra” is also unlawful and is prohibited from activities in Russian territory.
