The defense minister of France, Florence Parly, stated that whoever obstructs the fight against the ISIS must be excluded, referring to the Turkish attack on Afrin.

The Minister expressed concerns that the fighting could spread further, and demanded an end to the bombing of Idlib by the Syrian regime.

“It is certain that very significant bombardments are taking place. We demand an immediate end to these. As we have often requested, we want a humanitarian aid corridor to be opened because civilian areas are being targeted, “Parly said.

During the week, French Foreign Minister Jean Yves le Drian criticized the Turkish regime’s attacks on the civilian population. Le Drian responded to persistent questions from a host of the BFM TV channel as follows: “One can understand that Turkey wants to ensure the security of its borders, which is a legitimate right. But that does not mean that one is entitled to kill civilians with this argument. This situation is to be condemned. No war should be added the war in Syria. So far, the ISIS has not been completely defeated in Syria. “
