ISTANBUL Russia is attempting to carry out “ethnic cleansing” in Syria’s northern Latakia province, forcing its Turkmen and Sunni population out to develop a protected haven and shield Russian and Syrian bases, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu stated.

“Russia is attempting to make ethnic cleansing in northern Latakia to force all Turkmen and Sunni population who do not have great relations with the regime, they want to expel them, they want to ethnically cleanse this region so that regime and Russian bases in Latakia and Tartus are protected,” he told members of the foreign media in Istanbul on Wednesday.
