Turkey has summoned US Chargé d'Affaires Philip Kosnett to the foreign ministry, Anadolu reports.

More than 1,200 people, including security force personnel and civilians, have lost their lives since the PKK - listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and European Union - resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July 2015.

He said that Washington should understand that PYD and YPG do not represent all ethnic Kurds of Syria.

Ankara believes YPG fighters are linked with Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) separatists inside Turkey, responsible for waging armed campaign since 1984 causing death to more than 40,000 people.

But in November, Turkish officials said US President Donald Trump told them in a phone call that Washington would no longer supply arms to the YPG.

Ankara accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary, as well as having a large network of influence and intimidation overseas.

In October, the YPG and their allies announced the capture of ISIL's self-declared capital of Raqqa in Syria after a four-month operation.

Ankara has therefore called on Russian Federation and Iran, and rightly so, to cease and desist from their active and open aggression and military involvement in the fighting in the Idlib province and summoned their ambassadors in Ankara for this objective.

It will be remembered that most of the opposition forces have been relocated to Idlib after being forced to withdraw from other parts of the country. "If you are guarantors, which you are, stop the regime".

The three countries had agreed past year to establish a "de-escalation zone" in the opposition-held Idlib province and surrounding region, which borders Turkey. The Russian newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda, an official body of the Russian Ministry of Defence, reported that the drones had taken off from the Muazarra region of Idlib that is controlled by Turkey and where Syrian opposition forces are based. "Iran and Russian Federation", warned Cavusoglu, "need to carry out their responsibilities".
