If what the Syrian army claims is true then the truth is, there's no hope for peace in Syria.

Syrian army seizes Turkish weapons after clashes with ISIS - ARA News

After several consecutive days of offensives by the Islamic State group (IS/ISIS) against various locations of Syrian regime forces in the countryside of Hasakah, pro-regime security forces seized a large mount of weapons and ammunition in the Geweran neighborhood south of the city, a military personnel reported.

The source told ARA News, on the condition of anonymity, that the regime forces seized “Turkish-made weapons and ammunition” in Geweran neighborhood located in the southern outskirts of Hasakah, northeastern Syria.

“The seized weapons included Turkish-made automatic rifles, “suicide” belts and a large amount of ammunition and hand grenades,” the source added.

Speaking to ARA News in Hasakah, civil rights activist Dilovan Mohammed said that clashes broke out between the pro-regime army backed by allied militias (National Defense Army) and IS militants on the road to the villages of Shaqra, Abyad, Sabaa Suqur and Dawoodiya.

“The clashes caused casualties on both sides,” he added, without specifying figures, pointing out that the pro-regime forces gained control of the petroleum junction in the countryside of Hasakah.

Since Sunday morning, the southern and western countryside of Hasakah has been experiencing clashes between IS jihadists and the pro-regime forces, coinciding with artillery and missile shelling by the pro-regime forces on locations of the radical group in the area.

Those weapons could be taken from the FSA.
Which country would be stupid enough to support ISIS with home made weapons?
And whats with the ''suicide'' belts,is that also something the weapon industry of a country produces?
5th generation suicide belt by the Turkish company S(uicide) B(elt)-san,really?:xD:
Assad cant blame the US,GCC or another western country because of a possible deal in the future so,blame it on Erdogan his biggest enemy.

Even if this is true, I'm not sure how much evidence and proof will be needed, and secondly what exactly are countries going to do about it? Start carpet bombing every country that maybe, perhaps, might have a potential link to IS?

Accusations have been flung left and right but no one cares about what Assad says anymore. Would the UN say, well, we suspect what you say might be true and we'll conduct an investigation to uncover the truth? Not likely. Turkey wouldn't be arming ISIS and planning to work alongside Saudi Arabia to restore stability in Syria at the same time.
