Russia supports Syria's fight against terrorism: Kremlin

MOSCOW, Feb. 17 (Xinhua) -- The Russian military continues to support the Syrian government forces in their fight against terrorists in the country, the Kremlin said Monday.
"We still regret that terrorists have intensified their activities in Idlib," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters in a daily brief.

Tensions in the northwestern Syrian province of Idlib have flared up recently as the Syrian government forces, which have launched wide-scale offensives against the rebels in the area, exchanged fire with Turkish troops, causing multiple deaths on both sides.
Moscow backs Damascus' military action, citing rising terrorist threats in Idlib.
On Saturday, U.S. President Donald Trump told his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in a phone call that Washington wants to see an end to Russia's support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
