Trump warns Russia, Assad regime, Iranian regime against killing civilians in Idlib
“Russia, Syria, and Iran are killing, or on their way to killing, thousands if innocent (sic) civilians in Idlib Province. Don’t do it! Turkey is working hard to stop this carnage,” Trump said in a tweet.
The presidents of Turkey, Russia and the head of Iranian regime agreed in Ankara in September to “de-escalate” conflict in Idlib after a months-long campaign that forced at least 500,000 civilians to flee.
Assad-Russian warplanes have committed dozens of massacres in Idlib and Hama countryside since they launched their bombing campaign on the 30th of April, largely violating the de-escalation zone deal reached between Russia and Turkey.
Turkish Presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said on Tuesday that Russia will work to stop attacks in Idlib after talks with a Turkish delegation in Moscow.
Trump has sought a close relationship with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, even after Ankara’s recent incursion against American Kurdish allies in Syria and Turkey’s purchase of the Russian S-400 missile defence system.
