Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said some of Russia’s partners literally implored them 'not to touch' a corridor which is a bit shorter than 100 kilometers on the Syrian-Turkish border around Azaz. She said this is obviously meant to ensure continued daily supply to Islamic State, Jabhat al-Nusra, and other terrorist groups of weapons, ammunition and food, and to provide a passageway for the terrorists.

On Tuesday the Kremlin strongly rejected accusations by Turkey that Russian bombs hit several medical facilities and schools in northern Syria.
