Hissam Sho’ayb told the Arabic-language website of Sputnik that the terrorists’ drone attacks against Humeimim base have angered Russia which has been committed to the Sochi and Astana agreements.
He added that Ankara has used the recent ceasefire in Northern Syria to create new opportunities for the terrorist groups to reinvigorate and send new militants to the region via Turkey.
Sho’ayb said that Turkey is deeply sad and confused by the Syrian army’s continued battle against the terrorist groups to liberate Idlib, and said not only Ankara but also other sides, including Washington, will be harmed by the collapse of Idlib.
He noted that a large number of civilians have been taken hostage by the terrorists in Idlib as militants also attack the infrastructures and civilians in Northern Syria, adding that the Syrian army operations will continue until liberation of the entire region.
Turkey has been aiding the terrorist groups militarily and supporting their family members.
Relevant reports said last week that Russia had warned Turkey that it would provide military support for the Kurdish militias in Northern Aleppo in case Ankara continued supplying weapons and equipment to the terrorists against the Syrian army in Idlib province.
Al-Rai al-Youm news website quoted an informed source as saying last Friday that Ankara had received a clear warning from Moscow after it extended military support for Tahrir al-Sham and other terrorist groups in attacks against the Syrian army in Northern Hama and Southern Idlib.
It added that Moscow had cautioned Ankara that in case of continued supply of weapons and equipment to the terrorists in Idlib, it would provide the Kurdish forces in Tal Rafa’at with military support.
Based on the report, the Ankara-backed Faylaq al-Sham terrorist group receives weapons, military equipment and ammunition from Turkey and supplies them among the terrorist groups in different fronts across Northern Syria.
