Erdogan’s crimes in Syria prove he is an international outlaw: Foreign Ministry

DAMASCUS, (ST)- Syria has strongly condemned the criminal acts being committed by the Turkish occupation’s forces against the Syrian people, calling on world public opinion to act to force Erdogan to stop his crimes immediately.

An official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates told SANA that “Syria condemns in the strongest terms the Turkish occupation’s crimes against the Syrian people, the latest of which were the drone strikes conducted yesterday on residential neighborhoods in the countryside of Tal Abyad in Raqqa which led to the martyrdom of five civilians, including children, and wounding several others.”

 The Turkish regime forces and their terrorist tools and mercenaries keep committing crimes against the Syrians despite the agreements reached in the Astana and Sochi meetings. These crimes prove that Erdogan is an international outlaw whose intentions and deeds are based on occupation and aggression regardless of his commitments pursuant to the reached agreements as well as to the international law and the US Charter.

The Syrian Arab Republic, the source said, affirms that it will continue to defend its people, sovereignty and territorial integrity against the Turkish regime’s aggression and aspirations.

Syria urges  world public opinion to immediately move in order to force Erdogan to stop his crimes which flagrantly violate all the international and humanitarian laws and conventions.
