Turkish President Recep Tayyip stressd on Monday (April 20)  that Assad regime accelerated its aggression in the Idlib de-escalation zone, located in the country’s northwest, by taking advantage of the pandemic, which caught full attention of the world and Turkey.

"Turkey will protect its commitment to the March 5 agreement reached with Russia, and will not allow the aggression of the regime," Erdogan said.

"If the regime, which violates the cease-fire and other conditions of agreement, continues like this, it will pay for it with very heavy losses," he said, noting that other "dark groups" would also not be allowed to carry out provocative activities.

On March 5, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin agreed on a new cease-fire in Idlib which took effect one day later.
