14 Turkish personnel and 45 others were injured in Syrian Army attacks in Greater Idlib, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.
Erdogan once again claimed that his country will attack Syrian government forces if they threaten Turkish forces in Syria’s Idlib province.
“If any harm comes to our soldiers in observation posts [in Idlib] or anywhere [in Syria], I declare from there that we will hit regime forces everywhere regardless of the Sochi deal,” Erdogan said.
He also repeated the threat to push back the Syrain Army from Turkish observation posts in Syria’s Greater Idlib by the end of February. This became the second time when the Turkish president officially threatened Syria with a declaration of war if its forces do not withdraw from the areas recently librated from terrorists.
