Protecting the Syrian people is the duty of the Syrian army and the Syrian state only: Foreign Ministry

DAMASCUS, (ST)- Syria has reiterated that protecting the Syrian people is the duty of the Syrian army and the Syrian state only, an official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said in a statement on Thursday.

The source was commenting on the new remarks made by the President of the Turkish regime in which he claimed that he is keen on protecting the Syrian people and their rights.

The source stressed that these remarks can only be made by a person who is disconnected from reality, reiterating that Syria will confront the brutal Turkish aggression in any spot in Syria by all legal means.

 "After his continuous support for terrorism in Syria by training, arming and protecting terrorists and by sending tens of thousands of mercenaries to kill the Syrians, Erdogan makes statements that can never be uttered except by a person who is disconnected from reality as he speaks of his commitment to protect the Syrian people while he has the blood of the Syrian people killed by the terrorists on his hands," the source said.

Erdogan's talk about protecting the Syrian people while he is invading the Syrian territories and attacking civilians in the north of Syria under the pretext of fighting terrorism indicates a criminal regime that commits massacres and hides behind false humanitarian slogans.

The source asserted that Syria, which has defeated the Turkish regimes' terrorist tools and agents, will also confront the Turkish aggression by all legitimate means.

Syria reiterates that fighting terrorism will continue as Erdogan's statements won't stop this process and that protecting the Syrian people is the duty of the Syrian Arab army and the Syrian state only, the source concluded.
