Turkey received ‘very strong warnings’ in the past few hours from Syrian ally Iran in case Ankara launched a military strike against Damascus, a report revealed
Syrian ally Iran has warned their common neighbour Turkey that it will meet a harsh response should Ankara carry out any strikes inside Syrian territory, a pro-Damascus daily reported on Monday.
“Any attack on Syrian territory will meet with a harsh response, and the Iranian-Syrian mutual defence agreement will be activated,” the Al-Watan newspaper said.
“Turkey has received very strong warnings in the past few hours and the following message — beware changing the rules of the game,” the paper added.
Iran is the closest regional ally of embattled Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but has also striven to keep good relations with Turkey even as the standoff over its controversial nuclear programme has deepened with other NATO member states.
