Syria asks US, Turkish military forces to leave Syria

Syrian Ambassador to the United Nations and head of the government delegation to intra-Syrian peace talks, Bashar al-Jaafari, says US and Turkish military forces should leave his conflict-plagued Arab country immediately.

He made the demand during the latest round of Syrian peace negotiations in the Kazakh capital city of Astana. The development came after Turkish officials said they were sending troops into Syria to enforce a de-escalation zone in Idlib, which is largely controlled by the Takfiri Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) terrorist alliance. The de-escalation zone forms part of an agreement reached between Turkey, Iran and Russia.
