Iran Warns Turkey, Says Do Not Test Our Patience In Idlib, Syria

Published

The Iranian Military Advisory Center (MAC) an organization affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has warned Turkey to halt its airstrikes on Tehran-backed militias deployed in Idlib.

Helpless Turkey Fighting A Losing Battle Against Russia-Backed Bashar-Al Assad?

The warning from Iran came after the killing of over a dozen mercenaries in the Turkish offensives on pro-Iran and Syrian forces.

In a statement published by Hezbollah militia-affiliated al-Mayadeen outlet said Iran-backed militia groups have come under attack while assisting in the defence of areas held by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces.

Iranian and Iran-backed groups “have not attacked Turkish troops in the area since their arrival in Idlib,” the statement reads. “Avoidance of Turkish troops in the area is still on.” But in response to “a large-scale attack on Syrian army targets” on February 25 by Turkey-backed militia proxies, “Iranian militias supported the Syrian regime units to defend,” the statement added.

The Turkish-backed Turkestani Islamic Party in Syria and Jabhat al-Nusra jihadist groups conducted their attacks with airstrike support from Ankara, according to the statement. The body claims to have sent a group of negotiators to urge Turkish soldiers to “halt their aggression” and arrange a peaceful solution, but in vain.

Pakistan Helping Best-Friend Turkey To Fight Assad, Russian Forces In Syria?

Iran has militarily supported the Syrian regime in its nine-year war against opposition groups including the Islamic State (ISIS). It also backs various proxy groups and also funds Hezbollah, a Shiite militia that has staunchly supported Assad in Syria.

With Russian backing, Syrian forces and its allied groups in December launched an audacious assault against rebels in the northwestern provinces of Idlib and Aleppo in December, recapturing more than a hundred towns and villages it lost since the early years of Syrian civil war in 2011. Almost a million civilians have been displaced, according to the UN.

Russia, Turkey On The Verge Of Full Scale War As Both Putin, Erdogan Refuse To Budge

Iran has made it clear that it will continue to support the Syrian people and the armed forces of the Arab Republic in the war on terrorism until the land of Syria is completely liberated.

Earlier,  Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had a telephone conversation with his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani. According to the public relations office of the Turkish Presidential Administration, Erdogan and Rouhani discussed bilateral relations and regional issues, primarily the situation in the Idlib de-escalation zone.
