Russia's defense ministry said it had registered "a growing number of signs of hidden preparation of the Turkish Armed Forces for active actions on the territory of Syria". There was no immediate comment from Turkey.

This week, three days of intensive Russian bombing helped the army and allied fighters to severe a major supply line to the northwest of the city, in the process reaching two Shi'ite towns loyal to the government for the first time in 3-1/2 years.

Assad's foreign opponents have been funneling weapons to vetted rebel groups via both Turkey and Jordan. One rebel leader said he expected "something new God willing" after the failure of the Geneva talks. Another rebel commander said: "They are promising to continue the support. In what form, I don't yet know ... How it will crystallize, nobody knows ... We need to wait."
