In an open letter sent to the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the UN Security Council on Monday, Syria’s Foreign Ministry states that any country supporting the Turkish regime is in actual fact also supporting terrorism.

“The continued support of France, USA, Britain, Saudi Arabia and Qatar to the Turkish regime is a clear support to terrorism, not only in Syria but in all world countries,” the letter read.

“The Syrian government calls on UN Security council to assume its responsibilities in preserving the international peace and security, and to call on Turkey to immediately withdraw from the Syrian territories, and to respect sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria,” added the letter.

It also went onto emphasise that the only way to fight terrorism is in Syria was only through coordinated efforts with Damascus.

“The government of the Syrian Arab Republic condemns, with the strongest terms, the repeated crimes, violations, aggression and massacres perpetrated by the regime in Ankara against the Syrian people, sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic,” stressed the letter.

Turkey last week launched its Euphrates Shield operation aimed at expelling ISIS and the YPG from its border with Syria west of the Euphrates river.

In the past Turkeybhas a lucrative cross border trade with ISIS for Syrian oil before Russia’s intervention in Syria exposed this.

El gobierno Sirio debe buscar alianza con los Kurdos y defender su soberanía de los patrocinadores del terrorismo, en este caso son los mismos terroristas que atacan la ciudad de Alepo ahora aprovechan entrar por el norte de Alepo.

It seems that Russia feels that Turkish PRESIDENT Ardoghan has lied to Russian President PUTIN, as they say NEVER TRUST A SNAKE,
But first time Putin before sent S400, and made a NO FLY ZONE over Syria,,
This second time time PUTIN has sent the Russian Pensars with TANKS to ALEPPO to answer to ARDOGHAN deceit.

I’d say we just have to sit back and watch what’s coming next.

“NEVER TRUST A SNAKE,” Whats wrong with it? The only problem is to recognize the one, who is the snake.
