' “This is a big development,” Ms. Hutchison said, “and our alliance is with Turkey, it is not with Russia.” She added, “We want Turkey to understand that we are the ones that they’ve been allied with.”


The escalation came as Western members of the United Nations Security Council in New York implored Russia and Syria to decree a humanitarian cease-fire in the Idlib region.


Rossiya 24, a state news channel, reported that Turkey was targeting Syrian Army troops with artillery and Russian helicopters with antiaircraft fire in response to the strike that killed Turkish soldiers. The report cited only unspecified “information” it had received, not an official source.'
