Video - YPG: Convoys carry aid to Al-Nusra from 'Sometimes NATO Ally' Turkey. (RT).
Footage captured by RT journalists, Wednesday, shows a large convoy of trucks crossing from Turkey into Syria near the Syrian town of Azaz. Members of the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) told RT that Jabhat Al-Nusra have established camps next to the border and receive regular supplies from the Turkish side via convoys like the one captured in the footage.
An RT crew has filmed a number of vehicles coming through the Bab al-Salam crossing on the Turkish-Syrian border, on the outskirts of the northern town of Azaz, which is partially controlled by Al-Nusra, according to reports.
“We can actually see here the important border town of Azaz, that Turkey is determined to prevent YPG from taking. Just a little beyond that you can see the Bab al-Salam border crossing and a heavy flow of vehicles coming from Turkey into Azaz,” the RT correspondent said, reporting from the Turkey-Syria border, an area that TV crews rarely gain access to.
“When we zoom in we can see Turkish military vehicles, probably around a kilometer away, maybe less. And just in front here's another small village that YPG say Al-Nusra uses for training,” Phelan said.
“Beyond that we can see the Turkish flag flying, that’s on the Turkish side of the border, and through there the YPG says they monitor a regular supply of weapons coming from Turkey to that Al-Nusra camp.” Read the full story here.
