regime attacks in northern Syria

Turkey's Erdogan told Russia's Putin on a phone call on Thursday that for the Sochi Summit and the Astana process to succeed, Syrian regime's attacks on Idlib and East Ghouta provinces have to be stopped, Turkish presidential sources said.
Turkey has been fiercely opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his regime during his country's six-year-old civil war but has recently been working with his allies Russia and Iran for a political resolution to the Syrian conflict that has taken many lives and caused huge destruction to the country.
The three countries agreed last year to establish a"de-escalation zone"in the opposition-held Idlib province and surrounding region, which borders Turkey, but Syrian forces have since launched an offensive in the area against militants.
