Syria should stop attacking Idlib: Turkey's defense chief
HATAY- Anadolu Agency
“Assad regime attempts to widen its control area in south of Idlib against the Astana Agreement.” He said attacks cause civilian casualties and force residents to leave their living spaces. “Humanitarian problems are growing day by day and increasingly tending to turn into a disaster."
The attacks also pose a risk to Turkey’s observation spots in the region, he said, and disrupt Turkish armed forces' patrols and movement.
“Turkey, aware of its responsibilities, will make every effort in line withexisting agreements with Russia for the security and peace of innocent people in the region.”
Syria has begun to emerge from a devastating conflict that began in 2011 when the Assad regime cracked down on demonstrators with unexpected severity.
