Turkish president threatens attack in Aleppo,Strong reaction from Russia

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has threatened to take action if Syria forces not to evacuate the area according to the agreement by the government forces in Syria, Russia has warned Turkey.

According to a foreign news agency AFP report, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan addressed his party members in parliament, saying that if the Damascus army failed to evacuate the places where the Turkish army was present, then A major operation will be carried out at the end of the month.

In his address, he said, "The action in the heart is very close, we are counting down and giving the last chance".

It is understood that an agreement was reached in Russia's mediation in 2018 under which Turkish forces were allocated space in the border region of Idlib, where a safe zone was to be built, but recently Syrian forces regained control of these locations.

Russia, on the other hand, responded to the Turkish president's statement, warning that the Syrian forces should be avoided.

Kremlin spokesman Dimitri Peskov said, "If we are talking about action against the legal regime and the military in the Republic of Syria, then there is no doubt that the situation will go awry."

Turkish Defense Minister Holosi Akar spoke to the media after addressing Erdogan in parliament saying, "It is inappropriate for us to vacate our posts."

He said, 'If there is an attack on our posts we will respond in this way'.

There have been several steps taken by Turkey to accommodate refugees in the border region of Idlib, but after the Syrian army's intervention, it has slowed.

It should be noted that Turkey warned Russia on February 9 that we had a Plan B ready for a breach of the agreement on Syria's safe zone.

Turkish Defense Minister Holosi Akar had said that "if the agreement was violated, we have Plan B and Plan C".

He said, 'We say at all times do not force us otherwise our Plan B and Plan C is ready'.

It is to be noted that the agreement between Turkey and Russia to keep Syrian Kurdish forces (PYG) 30 km away from the Turkish border was reached.

Under the agreement, the forces of both countries will jointly patrol in the 'safe zone'
