Hundreds of angry Syrian protestors stormed early on August 30 two Turkish border crossing north of Idlib, calling on Ankara to put an end to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) advance in the northern Syrian governorate.
Enab Baladi, a pro-opposition news outlet, said that the protestors stormed the border crossings of Bab al-Hawa and Atimah.
“Hundreds of demonstrators from several areas in Idlib stormed the Bab al-Hawa and Atma border crossings and reached the Turkish side, prompting the Turkish police to open fire and use tear gas to prevent the demonstrators from entering Turkish territory,” the outlet reporter said.
Opposition sources released videos showing the protestors rioting and clashing with the Turkish Police, especially in Bab al-Hawa, where several vehicles were reportedly destroyed.
According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), at least one protestor was injured by the Turkish Police fire.
The situation in the two crossing is expected to calm down in the upcoming few hours as the Ministry of Defense of Russia has already announced a new one-sided ceasefire agreement in Greater Idlib.
