BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:35 P.M.) – The Syrian Foreign Minister, Walid Mu’allem, issued a statement on Saturday condemning the Turkish Army’s incursion into the Idlib Governorate.

“The Turkish Army’s incursion in Idlib is a direct violation of the Astana agreement,” Mu’allem stated on Saturday.

Mu’allem would then demand the Turkish Army immediately withdraw from the Syrian territories, with no preconditions.

The Turkish Army entered Syria’s Idlib Governorate, Thursday, after Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, announced that his forces were planning an offensive against Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in the province.

Con este pronunciamiento el gobierno sienta posición frente a los invasores turcos, en el fondo la invasión de Turquía tiene que ver con los Kurdos y seguir apoyando a sus terroristas incluyendo Al-qaeda.
Si de verdad quisiera aportar lo mejor que hubiera hecho es cerrar frontera desde el lado Turco.

nothing but meaningless words,syria pulled the same thing last time the turks came into syria from the north in aleppo prov,,if syria was serious they would have issued threats to attack the turks ,if they really did not want them believe me turkey would not dare go into syria,,this is nothing but loud words to keep up appearances and give lip service to the kurds which im sure syria has no problem allowing turdgay to supress,,but they and there allies are playing with fire dealing with wild card turdgay,,swapping one problem for another to be dealt with down the road

sorry but i call BS on this and nothing but window dressing,,syria never loudly objected to this move nor made a big fuss about it,besides this was a deal the turks had with russia and iran so if syria had a real problem they would have rejected this deal,,,these days syria allows anyone to willy nilly break there sovereignty,,otherwise why have they not shot at them like they did there jet years ago when it came close to there air space?

The answer to your doubts is clear my friend. If Iran and Russia agree with Erdogan, it is because Syria also agrees with him and will benefits equally from Turkey actions, since the only thing that interests the Turks are the Kurds who are now a kind of painful grain in the back of Syria and all its allies. Obviously the Syrian authorities are acting and doing pure diplomacy in protesting at the Turkish presence and it is very understandable in the face of international opinion. Watch well and you will can see more clearly the reality behind the loom… Read more »

exactly ,i believe from the very first time turkey entered syria that there was some back door agreement with syria to let this happen so that turkey can deal with this pain in the back kurdish problem while syria and rusia get to keep there hands clean of it,,back then syria acted the same with weak verbal objections for public consumption ,,problem is turkey is a wild card so it might give syria problems later if they decide not to leave
