BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Foreign Ministry sent a statement to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on Friday, calling on the international community to put pressure on Turkey to leave Syria and end their aggression against the country.

This statement from the Syrian Foreign Ministry comes just 24 hours after the Turkish Air Force massacred two dozen people inside the city of Al-Bab in east Aleppo.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan sent his armed forces into Syria last August to help his rebel allies seize the border-city of Jarabulus.

Following the capture of Jarabulus, his armed forces and their rebel allies began a lengthy operation to seize the strategic city of Al-Bab, which they have yet to take control of, despite superior numbers and firepower.

In addition to fighting the Islamic State (ISIS), the Turkish Armed Forces have repeatedly targeted the Kurdish-led “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF), leaving many people to believe that Erdogan is not just interested in fighting ISIS.

Recently, Erdogan told journalists in Ankara that his forces will not be done with their military operations in Syria once Al-Bab is captured; they will continue their campaign until they take control of Al-Raqqa.

Oportuno el pronunciamiento del gobierno Sirio, se debe respetar la soberanía de una nación… Si Erdogan quiere luchar contra el terrorismo como dice, basta con reforzar su frontera y que no pasen mercenarios hacia Siria, pero esto no ocurre sigue entrando suministros y armas por Idlib y lugar tomados por el ejercito Turco… Turcos dando viva a Erdogan en territorio Siria: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwrnhqThrJs

Turkey seems to be busy only with the kurds, and not with ISIS. So it is logical that Syria request they leave the country.

Turquía parece estar ocupado sólo con los kurdos, y no con ISIS. Por eso, es lógico que Siria petición de abandonar el país.
