Escalation in Idlib

Two Turkish soldiers were also killed in the airstrikes in the Syrian province of Idlib. A Turkish soldier was killed again on Saturday.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov previously said that Turkey had failed to meet a number of its key commitments to resolve conflicts in Idlib. In particular, Ankara has not delineated the armed opposition, which is ready to engage in dialogue with the Syrian government as part of a regulated process, from the terrorist organization “Jebhat an-Nusra” *.
