Turkish forces bombed a village and an airbase that were recently captured by Kurds, Al Mayadeen TV reported Saturday. Prior to being captured by the YPG, the village and the airbase belonged to al-Nusra Front terrorist organization.
“Moscow expresses its deep concern over the aggressive actions by the Turkish authorities against a neighboring state. We consider this move an open support to international terrorism and a violation of the according UN Security Council resolutions and obligations taken upon by Turkey as a member state of the International Support Syria Group in Vienna, New York, and Munich,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
Moscow believes the shelling of Syrian territory from Turkey needs to be discussed in the UN Security Council.
“Russia supports introducing this issue to the UN Security Council so that the Security Council gives a clear assessment to Ankara’s provocative line creating a threat to peace and security in the region of the Middle East and beyond,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
On Sunday, the Syrian Foreign Ministry sent a letter to UN chief Ban Ki-moon slamming Ankara over the shelling. Syrian authorities have called on the UN to take measures to ensure security and "put an end to the crimes of the Turkish regime."
