London: Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu implicitly accused Russia of “war crimes” today in comments at a donor conference in London, warning that the Syrian city of Aleppo was under “heavy attack” by Russian warplanes.

“The root cause is the war crimes committed by Syrian regime then war crimes committed by Daesh,” said Davutoglu, who spoke in English and referred to Islamic State using another Arabic name. “Those who are helping Assad regime are committing same war crimes,” he said.
