Syria lashes out at Erdogan over offensive

Published

on

The Syrian government sharply criticises Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, for saying the aim of his country’s current offensive in north-eastern Syria is to fight terrorism and protect Syria’s territorial integrity.

“He has come up with statements that are only made by a person dissociated from reality.’’

He speaks about his commitment to the protection of the Syrian people while he is an imprudent killer drenched in the blood of these [Syrian] people,

The Syrian state news agency SANA reports, citing a Foreign Ministry source.

“Protecting the Syrian people is the mission of the Syrian Arab army and the Syrian state only,’’ it added. (NAN)
