BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:25 A.M.) – Early reports from the northern Aleppo countryside indicate that the Russian-Turkish talks in Tal Rifa’at failed after the Turkish delegation refused certain terms of the deal.

According to the reports, the Turkish Army refused to force the militants in Jisr Al-Shughour to handover the town to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA); this prompted the Russians to refuse to handover Tal Rifa’at to Turkey.

The militants in Jisr Al-Shughour have long been a thorn in the Syrian Army’s side, as the town’s proximity to the Latakia Governorate leaves them within striking distance of government areas.

In recent days, the Syrian and Russian air forces have increased their attacks on Jisr Al-Shughour in an effort to get the militants to be more receptive to handing over the town.

The Syrian Army is poised to retake Jisr Al-Shughour and will not accept any kind of deal that would allow the militants to remain inside the town.

Jisr Al-Shughouris far away from the front line. Strange
