Turkish regime incessant aggression won’t succeed in reviving the terrorist organizations: Foreign Ministry

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.

Syria reiterates its complete refusal of any Turkish military presence on Syrian territories as it is a flagrant violation of international law and Syria’s sovereignty and it contradicts Astana and Sochi agreements on the de-escalation zone in Idleb, the source stressed.

According to the source, these Turkish violations affirm Erdogan’s insistence on disrespecting his pledges and in behaving as an outlaw regime.

Mrs. Sonia Khanji, Chairperson of the Businesswomen Committee, said in a statement to SANA that the book, which was launched Sunday evening, presents examples of Syrian businesswomen, who, despite the difficult circumstances caused by the war and the economic siege on Syria, have turned the negative circumstances in the country into positive energy that enabled them to play a major role in economic empowerment and development.

“Each one of these women has achieved notable presence in her work sector. Even during the war, they managed to break many old-fashioned social and economic barriers and played a new effective role in economic life through creating new work methods inspired by the situation on the ground, thereby presenting the world a distinguished example to follow,” according to Khanji.
