Damascus has reacted harshly to the bombing of Kurdish militias in northern Syria on Thursday morning by Turkey’s air force, vowing to intervene next time Ankara sends its planes over its border.
In a statement, the Syrian Defense Ministry accused Turkey of “flagrant aggression, which targeted innocent citizens,” saying that it considers it “a dangerous development that could escalate the situation.”
Kerry and Lavrov were joined by diplomats from Iran, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan and Iraq, as well as by the United Nations’ special Syrian crisis envoy. All are involved in or affected by the civil war in Syria, where an estimated 400,000 people have died in more than five years of conflict. The United States leads a coalition of more than 60 nations conducting airstrikes in Syria against the Islamic State. Russia and Iran provide military support to the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad. The other countries host Syrian refugees or back the rebels.
