CAIRO – 23 November 2022: Egypt’s Foreign Ministry expressed concerns on Wednesday about the assaults on Iraq and Syria by the Turkish and Iranian sides over the past days.

“Egypt follows with great concern the repeated attacks witnessed by the two sisterly Arab countries of Syria and Iraq over the past days from Iran and Turkey, which violate the sovereignty of each of the two countries in its lands,” the ministry said in a statement.

“Egypt, while following developments with concern around the clock, calls for ensuring de-escalation in order to stop the bloodshed and sparing the region more factors of instability,” the ministry added.

Over the past few days, Iran and Turkey have launched attacks against Kurds in both Syria and Iraq with missiles and drones.

The attacks have killed scores and damaged infrastructure in the targeted areas.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to launch ground operations in Iraq and Syria against the Kurdish targets, saying the bombing campaign in the two countries “is just the beginning”.
