The General Staff of the Syrian Arab Army said it gives one last chance to the terrorist militants operating in the province of Idlib to lay down their arms.
The Ikhbariya news agency reported citing a military source, that the Syrian Army was ready to repel any Turkish aggression in the province.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan earlier expressed readiness to retaliate after its servicemen were killed in the province of Idlib in an attack by Syrian government forces.
The Syrian armed forces are trying to give the last chance to the militants and save the lives of the besieged civilians.
The army units operating in the region have been ordered to allow those who decide not to rely on the support of the Turkish forces, to surrender their weapons.
The Syrian Army was continuing its military operation against the militants, who have been fighting civilians and using them as “shields” in Saraqib and Tell Touqan in Idlib.
On 3 February, the Turkish Defense Ministry said that six Turkish soldiers had been killed in an attack by the Syrian Army in Idlib.
The Turkish military presence in Syria has never been sanctioned either by Damascus nor the UN Security Council. Turkey says its forces are deployed in the region in order to prevent conflicts in Idlib.
