DAMASCUS, (ST)- The Turkish regime continues its aggression on Syrian territories through deploying more troops in Idleb as well as in the countryside of Idelb and Aleppo and through targeting residential areas and some military points, an official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said on Tuesday.

The source added that the Turkish procedures aim at saving its affiliated terrorist groups which are being defeated as the Syrian Arab Army liberates more areas from terrorism.
