The Deputy Director of the Russian Cente Major General “Alexander Karpov”, issued a statement saying that about 150 citizens took part in a protest demonstration in the city of Al-Bab, northeast of Aleppo during which they raised slogans calling for the departure of the Turkish forces and its factions from the city and the return of the Syrian army to it.
The militants dispersed the demonstration with force and fired at the protesters, which led to the wounding of 5 protesters.
Karpov explained that the state of popular anger and resentment of the population with the current situation and their tendency to protest against the Turkish forces is escalating in northern Syria, indicating that the local population opposes the ongoing practices and violations of the Ankara factions in their areas.
