Turkey closes border with Syria

2012-07-25 12:13

July 25, Turkish authorities completely close the border with Syria. This was reported by the RBC referring to the TV channel NTV-Turk.


According to the Minister of Customs and Trade of Turkey Hayati Yazici, the decision was explained by the fact that several checkpoints had been captured by Syrian rebels. In this regard, the official Syrian authorities can no longer guarantee the security of the border.

Closure of the checkpoints will affect the companies that carried out trade with Syria. Trucks with goods continued to cross the border despite the hostilities. With regard to refugees fleeing to Turkey, they previously preferred to use the roads used by smugglers.

As recalled by the Rosbalt, today, Syrian government troops carry out special operations against insurgents in Damascus and Aleppo. Thus, the Syrian Air Force fighters attacked the opposition forces in Aleppo. This is the first time when the Syrian military commanders use a fighter in the second largest city of Syria.

As a result, according to the various opposition groups, from 114 to 147 people were killed in Syria on July 24. In addition to Aleppo, violence engulfed the country's capital - Damascus. In the main city of Syria, the government troops are fighting for control over the neighborhoods of al-Kadam and al-Asali.
