Iran speaks out for civilians in Idlib

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told his Turkish counterpart on Saturday that innocent people should be protected in Syriaโ€™s northwest province, as tensions rose between Moscow and Ankara over the fighting there.

โ€œIdlibโ€™s situation is very complicated, considering the presence of dangerous terrorists that should be uprooted and necessity to protect innocent people living there,โ€ Rouhani told Tayyip Erdogan in a telephone conversation, according to Iranian state TV.

Erdogan said on Saturday he had asked Russiaโ€™s President Vladimir Putin to step aside in Syria and leave Turkey to deal with Syrian government forces alone, after 34 Turkish soldiers were killed this week.
