Tehran 4 February _Turkey accuses the Syrian military of targeting its observation posts in the northwestern Syrian province of Idlib, claiming it is up to Russia to “stop” Damascus.

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_“I told my counterpart Sergei Lavrov that the regime was carrying out provocative attacks on our observations posts around Idlib (the province’s capital),” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Tuesday.

“We will retaliate if they continue this, and…they (Russia) need to stop the regime as soon as possible,” he noted, adding, “We also don’t accept the excuse of ‘we cannot fully control the regime’ here.”

On Monday, eight Turkish forces were reportedly killed in an attack that Ankara blames on Damascus. Later that day, Turkish forces bombarded dozens of targets around Idlib in supposed retaliation, with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan saying dozens of Syrian soldiers had been killed in the raids.
