Duvar English

Main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) Group Deputy Chairman Özgür Özel will present a motion on Feb. 28 calling for an emergency meeting at the Turkish Parliament on Feb. 29.

Özel’s motion will suggest the holding of an emergency meeting in parliament at 2 p.m. on Saturday Feb. 29 in order to assess the latest developments in the Northern Syrian province of Idlib.

Pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) has also made a call to Parliament Speaker Mustafa Şentop for an emergency session.

“It’s not too late to backtrack from past mistakes,” said the opposition party.

The Syrian government’s troops killed some 33 Turkish soldiers in the military hot spot, raising the past month’s total death toll in Idlib at 54.

In addition to that, Ankara has declared it will no longer stop migrants from crossing over to Europe in anticipation of a new wave of migrants fleeing from the conflict in Idlib.
