Turkey wants to turn Nusra Front (a terrorist group banned in Russia) into a political force similar to the Hezbollah movement in Lebanon, a source in the Syrian Negotiation Commission (SNC) has told Sputnik. “Turkey is trying to handle the Nusra matter in Syria’s north, and they [the Turks] want to make this group a political group, like Hezbollah in Lebanon”, the source said. The Turkish government hasn’t yet confirmed the information. The source in the Syrian Negotiation Commission (SNC) has also stated that Turkey wants to involve the Nusra Front terrorist group in a new army in the north of Syria, where Ankara wants to set up a safe zone. “Under the Turkish plan, Nusra will be involved in the national army in the north, which Turkey is trying to build now”, the source said.
