Turkey warns Syria ‘not to play with fire’ after strikes: minister

ANKARA, Aug 20, 2019 (BSS/AFP) – Turkey warned Damascus on Tuesday “not to
play with fire” a day after a Turkish military convoy was cut off by an air
strike in northwest Syria.

“The regime should not play with fire… As we have previously said, we will
do whatever is necessary to ensure the security of our soldiers and
observation posts,” Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told reporters in
Ankara.
