Militants of illegal armed groups are preventing citizens from leaving the checkpoints in the Syrian provinces of Idlib and Aleppo, said Rear Admiral Alexander Karpov, deputy head of the Center for Reconciliation of Warring Parties (CPVS) in Syria.
In Syria, the checkpoints “Seraqab” and “Miznas” in the province of Idlib and “Abu-Zeidin” in the province of Aleppo operate, opened with the assistance of the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of Warring Parties.
“According to information received by the Russian CPVS, militants of illegal armed groups operating in the territory controlled by the Turkish armed forces are preventing citizens from leaving through these checkpoints, blocking the movement of people and vehicles under threat of force and arrest,” Karpov said.
According to him, the militants set up checkpoints on the roads that lead to checkpoints, and also hold staged rallies of their supporters in order to disrupt the resumption of the work of humanitarian corridors.
“The Russian Center for the Reconciliation of Warring Parties calls on the command of the units of the Turkish armed forces exercising control over the territories in Syria to fulfill their obligations and ensure the free and safe movement of citizens in the exit corridors in accordance with the agreements reached,” Karpov concluded.
