  • More than 20 terror suspects arrested across Turkey

Turkish diplomatic sources say that Ankara has voiced to the ambassadors its "concern" about the operation which is conducted by the Syrian government forces in the south-east of idlib.

It has repeatedly condemned Washington's support for the YPG.

Lavrov noted that Moscow and Tehran have reached an important stage in preparation for implementing the initiative launched by Russia, Iran and Turkey to organize the Sochi Congress.

Humanitarian aid organisations, rescuers and activists allege the Syrian and Russian air forces have struck hospitals, schools and marketplaces in congested residential areas in rebel-held towns.

"Russia and Iran must stop the Syrian regime".

The official also pointed at the fact that fresh conflict in northern Syria could trigger more displacement on its southern border.

The Syria issue was discussed when Kosnett was summoned to the ministry, the source said. The drones were sent from Idlib, an area controlled by so-called "moderate opposition" units, the Russian defence ministry's official newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda said Wednesday.

The YPG has received arms shipments and training from the United States, in a move that angered Turkey which considers the Kurdish forces to be a "terrorist group" that threatens its security.

Idlib province is nearly entirely controlled by anti-government forces that are dominated by a jihadist outfit known as Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) consisting mostly of former fighters from the Al-Nusra Front, an Al Qaeda affiliate.

On Thursday, Moscow attempted to ease the strain with Ankara as President Vladimir Putin said the attack at Russian air base was a provocation, aimed at undermining Russia's relations with its partners, including Turkey. "This puts Russian Federation against Turkey more frequently", according to Deniz Zeyrek, daily Hurriyet columnist.

Contacts aimed at finding a political solution to the Syrian crisis will continue at various levels, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists commenting on reports about the Russian and Iranian ambassadors being summoned to the Turkish Foreign Ministry over ceasefire violations in the Idlib de-escalation zone allegedly committed by Damascus' forces.
