Syrian government urges UN to make Turkey withdraw from Syria

The Syrian government has called on the United Nations to force Turkey to pull "its invasion forces" out of Syria, state media said on Friday.


Turkey's military shelled Syrian government forces and their allies in northern Syria on Thursday, causing deaths and injuries, state-run SANA news agency reported.


Turkey launched its first major military incursion into Syria in August, deploying tanks and air power in support of rebel groups opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Turkey's operation aims to drive ISIS from the border and stop Kurdish militias from gaining ground in their wake.
