Turkish army soldiers stand guard as Kurdish people wait in a hope to enter Cizre, a town subject to a curfew as part of a controversial operation against Kurdish rebels, on March 22, 2016 in Mardin, for Newroz celebration. Nowruz, the Farsi-language word for 'New Year', is an ancient Persian festival, celebrated on the first day of spring, March 21, in Central Asian republics, Iraq, Turkey, Afghanistan and Iran.

Turkey is determined to drive Syrian forces beyond its observation points in Syria’s Idlib province, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said before the Parliament Wednesday.

“Turkey is determined to drive the forces of the regime [of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad] beyond the Idlib de-escalation zone boundaries, beyond our observation points, before the end of February,” he said, adding that Ankara is “ready to use any necessary force.”

He underscored that Turkey would conduct strikes on Syrian army positions “even beyond the territories outlined in Sochi memorandum in cases of attacks against the Turkish military.”

Since 2012, Idlib has been under the control of terrorists. In 2017, a de-escalation zone was created there, which accommodated militants from other Syrian regions who refused to surrender. There are 12 Turkish observation points in the province.
