 Four Russian generals allegedly killed in Syria’s Turkmen Mountain, - Anadolu Agency

15 pro-regime military officials, including four Russian generals, have been killed by opposition forces in northwestern Syria near the border with Turkey.

Syrian opposition sources said Wednesday, Censor.NET reports citing Anadolu Agency.

According to the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, the slain military officials included four Russian generals and four Syrian generals, who had met late Tuesday in Turkmen Mountain, in Syria's northern Latakia region, to discuss recent military developments.

One of the slain Russian generals, identified only as "Yuriy", was reportedly coordinating regime attacks in Turkmen Mountain, the sources added.

Predominantly-Turkmen areas of northwestern Syria have been under attack by regime forces backed by Russian airpower since last year November.

Recent attacks in these areas have displaced thousands of Turkmen, a Turkic ethnic group concentrated mainly in Syria and Iraq, prompting many to seek refuge in southern Turkey.
