WATCH: Angry Idlib residents burn Erdogan picture in protest

Amateur video footage has been released showing Syrian residents of Idlib province burning a picture of Turkish President Tayyip Recap Erdogan out of anger for recent events in the region.

The video is linked to huge protests by Syrian residents near the Turkish border, some of which have been shot at by Turkish border guards for trying to escape into Turkey via the Bab al-Hawa crossing.

Pro-militant supporters in Idlib province are also disillusioned with the fact that Turkish forces in Syria and the Erdogan government more generally speaking have done nothing to prevent the Syrian Army from retaking key areas of Idlib and Hama province from jihadist groups.

Many anti-government residents of Idlib believe they have been sold-out by Erdogan by way of some secret deal made with Russian President Vladimir Putin during his recent visit to an airshow in Russia.
