Turkey warns Syria ‘not to play with fire’ after strikes

Turkey warns Syria ‘not to play with fire’ after strikes

Turkey warned Damascus yesterday “not to play with fire” a day after a Turkish military convoy was cut off by an air strike in northwest Syria.

“The regime should not play with fire... As we have previously said, we will do whatever is necessary to ensure the security of our soldiers and observation posts,” Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told reporters in Ankara.

But, he added, “we hope it does not reach that point”.

The Turkish military convoy of around 50 armoured vehicles had entered the Idlib province on Monday heading towards the key town of Khan Sheikhun, where Russian-supported regime forces are fighting to retake the area from jihadists and rebels.

The Turkish defence ministry said that an air strike hit, killing three civilians and wounding 12.

But the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based monitor, said a Russian air strike hit a rebel vehicle leading the convoy just outside the town of Maaret al-Noman, 15 kilometres (nine miles) north of Khan Sheikhun.

The strike killed a Turkish-backed fighter from the Faylaq al-Sham group and two other opposition fighters, the Observatory said.
