Turkish foreign minister calls for US Patriot missiles as support in Idlib

Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Ankara wants the United States to send Patriot missiles to Turkey for back-up in Syria's northwestern province of Idlib.
Cavusoglu made the comment to reporters on Saturday in the Qatari capital Doha after a meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
Attacks by Syrian government forces killed 55 Turkish soldiers this month in Idlib. President Tayyip Erdogan has threatened to push back Syrian forces if they do not pull back to pre-determined lines.
