      Turkey: Assad and Jihadists Are 'Partners'

      Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu claimed on Thursday that the regime of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and the Al-Qaeda affiliate the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) are “backstage partners,” Al Arabiya reported.

      “Certain circles showcase threats of al-Qaeda and Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant so as to manufacture a perception that the Assad regime is the lesser of two evils, trying to cover up the oppression of a regime which is responsible for the killings of over 150,000 people,” Davutoglu was quoted as having said in a televised interview.
