Turkey 2 suspects held for spreading Daesh propaganda

Unconfirmed Turkish media reports had said that Turkey halted flights after Russia closed the airspace over Afrin after militants shot down a Russian Su-25 fighter jet in Idlib province on February 3.

The UN Security Council is now examining a draft resolution calling for a 30-day ceasefire in all of Syria to enable the urgent delivery of humanitarian aid, according to a text seen by AFP on Friday. Syrian ally Russian Federation has cast 11 vetoes on possible Security Council action on Syria since the civil war began in 2011, shielding Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government.

Turkish state news agency Anadolu reported on Friday that Turkish armed forces struck 19 targets overnight, as part of its ongoing operation inside Syria.

Iran's IRNA news agency confirmed the Israeli attack after it quoted the General Command of the Syrian Army, which said in a statement that "warplanes of the Israeli enemy at 3:42 a.m on Wednesday fired several missiles from inside Lebanese airspace at one of our military positions in the Damascus countryside".

His colleagues in the northern province of Idlib had treated more than a dozen cases of civilians falling ill due to a suspected chlorine attack on the city of Saraqeb.

Moscow has repeatedly blocked action in the council that would put pressure on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Members of Syrian civil defence forces known as White Helmets rescue a victim of an airstrike in the rebel-held enclave of Arbin in eastern Ghouta on Thursday. "We are at war", Erdoğan added.

"It's noteworthy that the extremists themselves and weapons for them, according to numerous witness accounts, are often transferred to the territory of Afghanistan by helicopters without identifying insignia", he was quoted as saying.

"We would like to see a ceasefire, the end of the war, but the terrorists, I am not sure, are in agreement", Vassily Nebenzia told reporters in NY. "The no-holds-barred nature of this assault is evidenced by reports that at least nine medical facilities, six of them in Idlib and three in eastern Ghouta, were hit by airstrikes", said High Commissioner Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein in a statement issued by his office (OHCHR).

Negotiations on the proposed measure are to begin on Monday, and diplomats said it could quickly come to a vote at the council.

According to the Turkish General Staff, the operation aims to establish security and stability along Turkey's borders and the region as well as to protect Syrians from terrorist oppression and cruelty.

Eastern Ghouta and Idlib, a northern province where violence also flared this week, are both so-called de-escalation zones agreed previous year in a bid to pave the way for an end to the conflict. The latter is designated as a terrorist group by Turkey. Russian Ambassador to the U.N. Vassily Nebenzia said Thursday that the proposed ceasefire is "not realistic", Agence France-Presse reported.
