Syria has condemned Turkey’s invasion in its northern territories as a blatant violation on international law.
In a statement on Wednesday, the Syrian Foreign Ministry slammed the reckless statements and hostile intentions of the Turkish government.
The ministry said the offensive is an outrageous violation of the UN Security Council’s resolutions that recognize the need to respect Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
Turkey launched Operation Peace Spring with air raids and shelling on Wednesday.
Syria’s state news agency SANA reported on Wednesday that three Syrian children and a woman were killed in a Turkish shelling attack in Bashiryah neighborhood in Qamishli.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry said Turkey’s “hostile behavior” is part of its expansionist plan to take over Syrian lands, stressing that the policy could not be justified under any pretext.
“What the Turkish regime claims regarding the security of the borders is refuted by this regime’s ignorance of Adana Agreement,” it said.
“Syria reminds that if Erdogan’s regime insists on launching its aggression, it will classify itself as one of the terrorist organization and armed groups and it will absolutely lose its position as a guarantor of the Astana process and it will deal a strong blow to the political process as a whole,” the ministry concluded.
