Trump tells Erdogan he'll lobby Nato to assist Turkey with Patriots: Official

US President Donald Trump has told Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that Washington will lobby Nato members to provide Turkey with Patriot missile systems, but refused to offer any direct military assistance in Syria's Idlib, Middle East Eye can reveal.

Turkish officials last month made a formal request to the United States, asking to temporarily deploy Patriot air defence missile systems to Hatay, a border town in southern Turkey, and conduct aerial patrols in show of support for Ankara's ongoing operations against pro-Syrian government forces.

The Turkish military has launched a ferocious broadside against Syrian government forces in Syria's northwestern Idlib province, where troops loyal to President Bashar al-Assad have been waging a deadly offensive against rebel groups.
