The Kremlin on Wednesday accused Turkey of failing to "neutralise terrorists" in Syria's last rebel bastion Idlib as tensions escalate with Ankara over the protracted conflict.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the Turkish side "had taken upon itself an obligation to neutralise terrorist groups" in Idlib under bilateral agreements. But "all these groups are mounting an attack on the Syrian army from Idlib and are acting aggressively towards Russian military installations", he added.
