Syrian Foreign Ministry has said that it “categorically rejects” Turkish presence on Syrian soil, as the tensions in Idlib continue to escalate.

“Turkish regime’s aggression will not succeed in reviving terrorist organizations and the Syrian army will continue to fight those terrorist organizations till eliminating them and regaining control over all the Syrian territories,” it said, Syrian news agency SANA reported on Feb. 11.

“Syria reaffirms its categorical rejection of any Turkish presence on the Syrian territory, as it constitutes a flagrant violation of the international law and a blatant aggression on the Syrian sovereignty,” it added.

Calling on the international community to act against Turkey, Damascus accused Ankara of contradicting Astana and Sochi agreements.
