Palestinian Official Blames Saudi Arabia, Turkey for Heightened Terrorist Attacks in Aleppo
TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior Palestinian official said the bloodshed in Syria’s Aleppo province in recent days was the result of the Riyadh and Ankara governments’ direct orders to the terrorist groups.

“Saudi Arabia and Turkey have supplied the terrorist groups in Aleppo with new weapons to violate the ceasefire in the Northern province and intensify attacks against the government forces,” Secretary General of Alliance for Palestinian Resistance Forces Khaled Abdel Majid told FNA on Saturday.

He reiterated that Saudi Arabia and Turkey have sent state-of-the-art weapons to different terrorist groups in Syria, specially the Al-Nusra Front.

“These two countries wanted to prove that they could take actions independent from international community, particularly the US and Russia, which resulted in a fiasco,” Abdel Majid said.

The Palestinian official reiterated that the Syrian army has the upper-hand in Syria despite a rise in the terrorist attacks there.

According to sources, at least 146 civilians have been killed and over 1,103 others wounded in terrorist groups’ brutal shelling of residential areas, hospitals and shopping centers across Aleppo in recent weeks.

Violence in Syria, and particularly in Aleppo, has intensified in recent days, despite a partial truce.

“52 children, 33 women and 61 men were among the killed civilians in the 10-day-long attacks of the terrorist groups,” the sources said.

“Over 432 children, 356 women and 315 men were injured in the rocket and mortar attacks on non-military areas in the city,” the sources added.

“Over 2,300 cases of attacks by the terrorist groups of al-Nusra Front, al-Shamiyeh Front, Ahrar al-Sham and the Free Syrian Army were carried out on the city districts,” they said.

The sources further added that the terrorist groups used mortars, gas canisters and 107mm rockets in the attacks on the Northern city.

The attacks by terrorists against civilian targets come as Syrian Army forces and their allies are surging in Aleppo to begin a massive operation against terrorists.
