The UN Security Council will hold an emergency meeting in connection with the worsening situation in the Syrian province of Idlib. This is reported by Anadolu on Friday, February 28.
According to diplomatic sources, the meeting was initiated by the United States, Great Britain, Germany, France, Belgium, Estonia, and the Dominican Republic.
The meeting will begin at 23:00 Kyiv time. The head of the agency, Dominic Raab, condemned the recent airstrikes by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s army and Russian troops in Idlib, which killed 33 Turkish troops.
There is no justification for such blatant disregard for international law or basic human decency. Based on the new sanctions announced earlier this month, we will work with our international partners to further spin this screw until these crimes stop,” the minister said.
As you know, after the death of the Turkish military in Idlib, Assad’s forces were subjected to massive blows. According to Ankara, aircraft and artillery hit more than 200 government targets in Idlib, destroying five helicopters, 23 tanks, 10 armored vehicles, 23 artillery pieces, two air defense systems and “neutralizing 309 militaries”.
The Russian Defense Ministry said that Syrian troops fired at the Turkish convoy because it was among the advancing militants. The ministry also assured that the Russian Armed Forces were not involved in the attack.
Ukraine supported NATO’s position and condemned the actions of the Syrian and Russian authorities in Idlib.
