DAMASCUS, April 17. /TASS/. The Ahrar ash-Sham group has sided with Jabhat al-Nusra (a terrorist group outlawed in Russia) near Aleppo which fact can mean that attempts by a number of member countries of the International Syria Support Group to distinguish terrorists from the ‘moderate armed opposition’ have failed here, Russian Ambassador to Syria Alexander Kinshchak told TASS on Sunday.
"According to the Syrian side and according to information from opposition internet resources, not only Jabhat al-Nusra militants are fighting here but also their allies from other armed groups, in particular Ahrar ash-Sham," he said. "It is an alarming tendency. As a matter of fact, it means that attempts by our partners from the International Syria Support Group to somehow distinguish Jabhat al-NUsra terrorists from ‘moderate armed opposition and revolutionary groups’ that could and must be covered by ceasefire have practically failed in this region.".
