Trump calls on Russia, Iran to stop 'bombing' Syrian province of Idlib

US President Donald Trump called on Russia, the Syrian authorities, and Iran to stop bombing the territory of the Syrian province of Idlib, ONA reports citing TASS.

“Hearing word that Russia, Syria and, to a lesser extent, Iran, are bombing the hell out of Idlib Province in Syria, and indiscriminately killing many innocent civilians. The World is watching this butchery. What is the purpose, what will it get you? STOP!”, Trump wrote in his Twitter.

Since the evening of May 21, militants of the Jabhat al-Nusra (Hayat Tahrir al-Sham terrorist grouping outlawed in Russia) have been launching massive attacks in the southern portion of the Idlib de-escalation zone on the government troops’ positions, using the armor, multiple launch rocket systems and suicide bombers’ vehicles.

In an interview with journalists on the South Lawn of the White House before flying to the UK, Trump said that he does not like what is happening in Syria with Idlib, as many people, civilians are killed indiscriminately.
