Turkey denies Russia's information on bombing of coordinates in Syria's al-Bab

Russian Federation and Turkey, who back opposing sides in the Syrian Civil War have been conducting joint air strikes on ISIS in recent weeks.

Russia immediately apologized for the bombing near the Islamic State-held town of al-Bab, which came amid warming ties between Turkey and Russia after they were strained by Turkey's downing of a Russian jet near the border with Syria two years ago.

The Turkish military has said the "friendly fire" incident occurred during an operation against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), highlighting the risk of unintended clashes between numerous outside powers in a complex war.

However the Russians say their planes attacked co-ordinates supplied to them by the Turkish military, and that the Turkish soldiers should not have been there.

Two rebel officials accused the government forces of provoking the incident.

"Rebels shot to warn them not to get any closer, but the tank responded and a clash erupted", a rebel source told Reuters on Friday speaking about Thursday's clash.

The Observatory reported the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) clashed with regime forces southwest of al-Bab, "amid mutual bombardment from both sides", the conflict monitor wrote.

"Later on Russian Federation intervened to calm down the situation", said the rebel official.

Both said an armoured vehicle had been captured from government forces.

There was no immediate comment from Russian Federation.

He said there had been a communications failure, adding: "There should not have been Turkish soldiers within the limits of these coordinates".

The Syrian army meanwhile mounted its own, rapid advance towards the city in the last few weeks, advancing to within a few kilometers (miles) of its southern outskirts.

The Turkish military said on Friday it had given the coordinates of the building in Syria where three Turkish soldiers were accidentally killed in a Russian air strike to its Russian counterparts a day before the incident.

The Kremlin spokesman said on Friday the air strikes were based on coordinates provided to Russian Federation by the Turkish military.
