BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 P.M.) – The Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, stated on Thursday that Ankara demands the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) immediately halt all military operations in the Idlib Governorate.

Çavuşoğlu’s statement comes shortly after the Turkish, Russian, and Iranian ministers met to discuss the ongoing war in Syria.

Meanwhile, northeast of Idlib, the Turkish Army has continued their operations against the predominately Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Aleppo’s Afrin Canton.

According to pro-YPG activists, the Turkish military has repeatedly attacked the southern part of the Afrin Canton today in a bid to obstruct the YPG’s supply lines from the government territories.

Turkey is guarantor of the truce not owner of any part of Syria.

So why on earth halt? HTS cannot be part of any truce. The moderates failed to eject HTS from Idlib – so what?

True enough. But Turkey should know that too. And act accordingly.

Turkey is likely to end the center of an UNSC resolution, it can also condemn its illegal occupation of Cyprus, its backing of Hamas, huge human rights violations in Turkish Kurdistan and serious other shits…
And as Erdolf mages to p**s-off everybody, it may become an enormous blowback…
This moron is a f*****g millstone and not only for Turkey, Syria and the whole Middle-East…
