Protesters in Turkey denounce Russia over Idlib assault

Hundreds of demonstrators gathered near the Russian consulate in the Turkish city of Istanbul on Saturday to protest the intensifying Russian and Syrian government attacks on Syria’s last rebel-held province of Idlib.

The demonstrators, mostly Syrians living in Turkey, gathered close to the Russian consulate in downtown Istanbul to “show the world that Russia is complicit” in the killing of civilians in Syria‘s northern Idlib region, according to Mohammed Kreimesh, a protest organiser.

“We wanted to also highlight the regime’s brutality against civilians and shed light on the humanitarian situation unfolding in Idlib,” Kreimesh said
