Russia warns Turkey against attacking Syria

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has threatened to launch an “imminent” operation in Syria’s Idlib province. 

Erdogan said Turkey is making its final warnings. He also said the recent talks with Russia over Syria’s Idlib were far from meeting Turkey's demands. Russia was quick to respond to Turkey’s warning. It said any operation against Syrian forces would be the worst scenario. On Tuesday, Moscow and Ankara ended talks on Idlib without any agreement. Tensions have run high in the northwestern Syrian region in the past few weeks, after Turkey said its forces had been attacked by Syrian forces. Government troops in Syria are engaged in Russia-backed operations in Idlib to drive out militants. Russia accuses Turkey of breaching an agreement they reached over Idlib in 2018.
