According to him, the Turkish Armed Forces deployed US-made missiles in the Syrian province of Idlib held by the militants, which is a flagrant violation of international law.

Bashar Jaafari said Ankara deployed MIM-23 Hawk medium-range air-to-air missiles in Idlib.

“The Turkish regime did not stop violating its obligations under the agreements of Astana, Sochi and Moscow, supporting terrorist organizations, but strengthened its illegal military presence on Syrian territory, delivering convoys with weapons and heavy equipment daily,” Bashar Jaafari informed.

He called on the UN to oblige Ankara and other states assisting terrorist groups in Syria to stop such support and help Damascus in its anti-terrorism efforts to complete the reconstruction process in the Arab country.

The Syrian diplomat added that any foreign military presence in Syria without the permission of the Damascus government is tantamount to aggression and occupation.

He also called on the UN to support the Syrian government in its efforts to complete the reconstruction process, eliminate terrorist groups and achieve a political solution to the ongoing conflict without any foreign intervention.

“Syria is determined to adhere to its sovereignty and territorial integrity and will not abandon its firm determination to liberate the occupied territories regardless of whether the occupiers are Americans, Turks, Israelis or terrorist organizations,” Bashar Jaafari emphasized.

Recall that Ankara has recently strengthened its military presence in Syrian-controlled Idlib held by militants, despite a ceasefire reached last month to stop the escalation.
