Ankara and Damascus have moved closer to an all-out war in the past week than at any other point in Syria's long conflict, in the wake of a ferocious regime assault on north-western Idlib province, on the border with Turkey.

"The UN Humanitarian Coordination Office announced that 400 civilians have died since December 1, and 700,000 people fled their homes in the past two months", said Cavusoglu, as he stressed the impact attacks by Assad and Russian Federation have had on residents in Idlib.

"The [Syrian] regime and the Russian forces as their partners, and the Iran-backed militia, attack always civilians, massacre people, and shed blood", Erdoğan said during a speech in Ankara on Wednesday.

Parts of Idlib and Aleppo provinces are now the front lines of the battle between Syrian armed opposition groups, some of whom are supported by Turkey, and Russian Federation and Iran-backed forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who is pushing to regain control of the whole country.

"I hereby declare that we will strike regime forces everywhere from now on regardless of the Sochi deal if any tiny bit of harm comes to our soldiers at observation posts or elsewhere", Erdogan added.

He said Turkey would do "whatever necessary" to push Syrian forces back behind the 12 observation posts it set up in Idlib under the Sochi deal.

Commenting on the situation in Idlib on Thursday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov stressed that Damascus had every right to engage in anti-terrorist operations on its own territory.

Syrian men ride a motorcycle in the village of Maaret al-Naasan in Idlib province. The Syrian state news agency Sana quoted a source at the foreign ministry as saying his "empty statements" were "disconnected from reality".

According to rebel commanders, a Syrian military helicopter was shot down on Tuesday (February 11) in the province of Idlib.

Turkey will send additional troops to Idlib, northwestern Syria, for the sake of a durable ceasefire, Turkey's defence minister said on Thursday.
