Damascus Demands ‘Immediate’ Withdrawal of Turkish Army From Syria


Few days after the Turkish troops began setting up observation posts in Syria’s Idlib following the announcement of Ankara’s second military operation in the Arab Republic, Damascus has reportedly strongly condemned the deployment.

According to the Syrian SANA news agency citing a source in the Syrian Foreign Ministry, Damascus has demanded the “immediate and unconditional” withdrawal of Turkish troops from the country.

An official source in the ministry told SANA that Syria condemns the incursion of the Turkish army units in the Idlib province, calling it a “blatant aggression against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria and a flagrant violation of international law and norms.”

The Turkish operation the Damascus’ source described as an “aggression” has nothing to do with the agreements reached during the latest round of the Syrian peace talks in Astana brokered by Russia, Iran and Turkey, SANA reported.

  1. Obviously, the Russians are complicit in the Turkish invasion of Syria, which, of course, signals an hardening in the divergence between Putin and Assad regarding the political and military objectives of the war. It means a “victory” for Russia in Syria will not necessarily be a victory for Assad or the Syrians.

    • “Obviously, the Russians are complicit in the Turkish invasion of Syria…”

      Why? Because the Russian forces have not been unnecessarily attacking the military of a NATO country, thereby giving the banksters the casus belli they have been hungry for…?

  2. Just another try to balkenise Syria. I don´t trust anyone in this game involved. They want the biggest piece of cake since their neighbour lies flat on the face.

  3. I propose that new Kurdistan occupy the Australia Northern Territory. Why not? Also I propose new Palestine to occupy the territory of Kent and Sussex in England and new Israel to occupy territory in Birobidzhan, Russia. Another Jewish state in New York State. That would be nice for a change. New Libya in Bordeaux. Why not? Is there some prehistoric genetic civilizational claim on those lands? Are the civilians there more valuable than elsewhere? The tanks would still roll but for another bunch of sorry genocidal losers. When you govern so much territory like the Commonwealth or Soviet Union you have to learn sooner or later to be more responsible for your dear earthly backyard. When you try to control all natural and global processes like the UNSC or NATO, you have to carry responsibility, or another one will instead. Same like with the big dinosaurs extinction.
