  • NATO head Jens Stoltenberg said on Friday that Russia’s air strikes in Syria targeting rebel forces are “undermining” efforts to find a non-military solution to the war.
  • He said NATO strongly supported efforts to end the war in Syria, which has cost more than 250,000 lives and displaced half the population, many of them fleeing to Europe in its worst migrant crisis since World War II.
  • “The increased Russian presence (and) air activity in Syria is also causing increased tensions and violations of Turkish airspace,” he said.
