    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that imposing a “no-fly zone” over Syria’s Aleppo would hardly give any results in fight against terrorism.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Moscow is against imposing a “no-fly zone” over Syria’s Aleppo because it would not help in the fight against terrorism, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.

    “The fact of the matter is that there are intense activities being carried out there in the fight against terrorist organizations that are also hiding out in those regions so such regimes would hardly give any results in our fight against terrorism,” Peskov said in response German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s statement on Wednesday of possibly imposing a “no-fly zone” over northern Syria.
