Assad attacks to cause new migration waves: Turkish PM

Binali Yıldırım speaks of 'new sufferings' following Assad regime’s intensified attacks in Syria’s Idlib province

Anadolu Agency

Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım warned on Friday that attacks of the Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria’s Idlib would trigger a new wave of migration and sufferings.

Speaking with reporters in capital Ankara, Yıldırım said Turkey, Russia and Iran -- the three guarantor countries in ongoing peace talks -- had taken the initiative to prevent more dire results in Syria.

“The [Assad regime’s] intensified attacks in Idlib will trigger a new wave of migration and will cause new sufferings,” he said.

Syria has only just begun to emerge from a devastating conflict that began in early 2011 when the Assad regime cracked down on demonstrators with unexpected ferocity.
