DAMASCUS: Turkey increased its support to the militant groups in Syria in exchange for stolen Syrian and Iraqi oil and artefacts, Syrian army has said.

Rebel convoys move freely through the Turkish borders, a statement of General Command of Army said on Saturday.

What Turkey pretends to be humanitarian aid is nothing but weapon shipments, state news agency SANA quoted the army statement as saying.

The Turkish authorities fomented a state of chaos on the Syrian-Turkish border which facilitated the flow of terrorists from Syria to Europe, the statement said.

The Turkish forces struck positions of the Syrian army on Friday, the statement added.

The barrage of accusations came as the Syrian army backed by the Russian airstrikes are on a crushing offensive on Syrian-Turkish borders.
