Only two of Russia's 57 air strikes in Syria have hit Islamic State, while the rest have been against the moderate opposition, the only forces fighting Islamic State in northwestern Syria, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Wednesday, according to Reuters.


Speaking at a school opening in Istanbul, Davutoglu said he does not want the conflict in Syria turning into a crisis between Russia and NATO nor into a Russian-Turkish dispute, Reuters has reported.

"But Turkey, a member of the alliance, will not compromise on the security of its borders or air space," Davutoglu said in comments broadcast live by state TV.
