Security Council meeting to discuss Turkish attacks on N, E Syria

The UN Security Council will hold closed-door consultations on Wednesday to discuss Turkish occupation attacks on northern and eastern Syria, UN diplomatic sources said.

The sources told the media on Tuesday that the consultations were convened by five European countries that are members of the Security Council, namely France, Britain, Germany, Belgium and Poland.

The meeting will be the second to be held by the Security Council since Turkey began its attacks on northeastern Syria.

Sources said both the United States and Russia had vetoed a resolution condemning the Turkish attacks.
