(refiles to fix garbled word in lede to “against”)

SOCHI, Russia, Sept 17 (Reuters) - Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Monday there will be no new military operation against Syria’s Idlib by Syrian government forces and their allies, Russia’s Interfax news agency reported.

He was speaking after the Russian and Turkish presidents agreed on the creation of a demilitarized zone in Idlib to separate rebel forces in the city from Syrian government forces. (Reporting by Maria Tsvetkova Writing by Christian Lowe Editing by Mark Heinrich)
