UNITED NATIONS, February 15./TASS/. At a session of the UN Security Council behind closed doors on Tuesday, Russia will bring up the issue of Turkey’s shelling the Syrian territory, a UN source has told Russian journalists.
According to the diplomat from a country member of the UN Security Council, no separate meeting was planned. Instead, the issue will be discussed within the framework of general discussion.
Turkish armed forces shelled on Monday positions of the Kurdish forces of self-defense in Syria, Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Tanju Bilgic said. He said the fire was opened in retaliation for an attack on a Turkish border point from the territory of the neighboring country. Western media note that positions of Syrian Kurds have been shelled for a third day running.
