Turkish and Russian Military Leaders Discuss Idlib Over the Phone

ANKARA – Turkish and Russian military leaders have had a phone call to discuss the latest developments in Idlib, a de-escalation area in north-western Syria, the Turkish military announced Thursday.
The Turkish chief of staff, General Yasar Guler, and his Russian counterpart, General Valery Gerasimov, also exchanged views on current problems, the Turkish armed forces said on Twitter.
At least five Turkish soldiers were killed and five injured in an attack by Syrian forces in Idlib earlier this week.
This followed last week’s attack by Syrian forces in Idlib, which killed seven Turkish soldiers and a civilian contractor working with the Turkish army. He also injured more than a dozen people.
In retaliation, Turkey has neutralized more than 120 Syrian soldiers since last week.
Turkish troops are in Idlib – nominally a ceasefire zone, under an agreement between Turkey and Russia – as part of an anti-terror and peace mission.
In September 2018, Turkey and Russia agreed to make Idlib a de-escalation zone in which acts of aggression are expressly prohibited.
