The Turkish Foreign Ministry has categorically denied reports that a Turkish army general was arrested while assisting the Syrian rebels in Aleppo today.
Iran's semi-officials Fars News Agency had reported earlier in the day that a Turkish general was captured in Aleppo and was taken to Damascus for interrogations.
A ministry official denied the reports, saying Fars had previously run numerous stories regarding Turkey which were later revealed to be untrue.
