Saudi Arabia strongly responds over Turkish Military war in Syria
ISLAMABAD - Saudi Arabia strongly responds over Turkish Military war inside Syria.
Saudi Arabia quickly condemned Turkish "aggression" in northeast Syria, calling the military operation a violation of the sovereignty and territorial unity of Syria, Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported, citing a source in the kingdom's foreign ministry link, SPUTNIK has reported.
According to the press service of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), at least three Kurdish militia fighters and five civilians were killed, while dozens were injured in Turkish shelling of border areas in Syria.
In addition to aerial attacks on Keri Sbei, Tal Abyad, and West Ayn Issa, areas surrounding Sari Kaneh, Ras al-Ain, Qamishlo, Darbasiyah, and Dirk were subjected to intense artillery shelling, according to the SDF report. Turkish jets also reportedly pounded link a power line supplying electricity to the Alluk water management facility, as well as a dam north of Al-Malikiyah.
Turkey has played a considerable role in the Syrian civil war by supporting various armed opposition groups fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad, while at the same time attacking Kurdish forces located in the country, despite protests from Damascus. Damascus has repeatedly called the presence of Turkish forces on the Syrian border illegal and urged Ankara to withdraw its troops.
