Syria slams Turkish acts of aggression against civilians

Damascus has strongly condemned “criminal acts of aggression” perpetrated by Turkish military forces against Syrian people in the aftermath of a cross-border incursion into the northern part of the Arab country, calling on the international community to force Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to stop the measures.

An unnamed source at the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said in a statement on Thursday that the Damascus government severely censures Turkish forces’ crimes against ordinary Syrian civilians – the latest of which took place the previous day when Turkish unmanned aerial vehicles bombarded residential neighborhoods on the outskirts of Tal Abyad town in the northern province of Raqqah, killing five people, including children, and injuring several others.
