Turkey could not give two hoots about the Syrian people, the suffering of the Syrian people, especially those in Aleppo is largely the work of Turkey. Ever since the war started, it is Turkey that has been supplying the terrorist mercenary scum posing as ‘rebels’. Much of the supply effort has been covert, using ‘aid’ convoys to sneak in weapons, munitions and supplies under the guise of humanitarian efforts.
