MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th February, 2020) The Russian center for Syrian reconciliation denied on Friday Turkey's reports on the losses suffered by the Syrian army in the Idlib de-escalation zone.
"The Turkish Defense Ministry continues to disseminate reports of the alleged losses suffered by the Syrian army as a result of attacks by Turkish troops operating in the Idlib de-escalation zone," the ministry said in a statement.
"Such statements about the units of the Turkish armed forces firing at the Syrian government troops by units, and, moreover, about the deaths among the Syrian military personnel as a result of these attacks are completely false," the center stressed.
According to the Russian military, these irresponsible statements only contribute to the escalation of the situation in the Idlib de-escalation zone and to hasty decisions that harm the mutual interests of Russia and Turkey.
