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.

Hahah what country would send a general to rebel forces, sounds like non sense to me. That job would be of the special forces.

Yeah, ok. it is quite clear how heavy the Turkish involvement in the spilling of innocent Syrian blood. Whether Turkey denies this or not is quite immaterial.
