Syrian state media on Friday cited field commanders as saying Turkey helped terrorist launch a counter attack against the Syrian army and its allies in the northwest this week, underlining recent regional tensions over the fighting.

"Terrorist organizations, supported by the Turkish regime, have suffered a new field defeat after the Syrian Arab Army thwarted their attack in the countryside of Idleb province. Field commanders confirmed to the SANA correspondent that terrorists from the Turkistan Islamic Party with the direct support, direction and planning of the Turkish regime, brought most of their forces... to start their attack," said SANA, the state news agency.

It added that the terrorists had used Turkish vehicles.
