Erdogan, Putin discuss Idlib over phone

Turkish President Erdogan spoke to his Russian counterpart Putin over the phone to discuss recent Syrian regime attacks on Idlib that could trigger a massive exodus from the province where around 3 million people are living in.

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin had a phone conversation on late Monday evening to discuss recent developments in Syria's Idlib and bilateral relations.

President Erdogan stressed that the Assad regime has reached an alarming level of violating the ceasefire in Idlib which is under de-escalation zone, Communications Director of Turkish Presidency Fahrettin Altun shared on his Twitter account.

Parts of Idlib and Hama provinces have been under attack for two weeks.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the regime has now taken control of a number of villages in southern Idlib.
