The presidents of Turkey and Iran on Tuesday vowed to press on with their alliance alongside Russian Federation over Syria, the Turkish presidency said Tuesday, after Ankara backed strikes by the US and its allies against the Assad regime.

A set of satellite images released Sunday revealed new details about a strike on an Iranian military base in Syria earlier this month, that is widely believed to have been carried out by Israeli forces despite its refusal to comment on involvement in the strike.
