Turkish terror state will start a military operation east of the Euphrates river in northern Syria in a “few days,” dictator Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said.
“It is time to realize our decision to wipe out Kurdish forces east of the Euphrates,” lunatic dictator Erdoğan said in a speech at the Turkish Defense Industry Summit held in Ankara on Dec. 12.
“We will start the operation in east of the Euphrates in a few days to save it from the separatists Kurds,” terrorist Erdoğan added, referring to the YPG “Turkey’s target is never the U.S. soldiers, but rather the members of the Kurdish group.”
The Pentagon had announced on Dec. 11 that American observation posts in northern Syria, meant to prevent altercations between the Turkish army and US-supported YPG, have been erected, despite Ankara’s request to scrap the move.
The United States has long been complained that tensions between Turkey and the SDF, of which the YPG is the backbone, have at times slowed down progress on fighting the ISIL.
Erdoğan slams new US plan for ‘protecting terrorists, not Turkey’
“There is no Daesh threat in Syria any longer,” Erdoğan said Dec. 12, accusing the U.S. of “delaying tactics” regarding its promise to clear the north Syrian town of Manbij from Kurdish members.
“It is clear that the purpose of U.S. observation points in Syria is not to protect our country from terrorists but protect terrorists from Turkey,” he noted.
“We do not see them as well-intentioned approaches,” the terrorist ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) spokesman Ömer Celik said Dec. 11, referring to the reported U.S. plan. He added that the move will be seen by Turkey as “lending fresh support to terror elements in Syria.”
U.S. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford had said on Dec. 7 that the U.S. needs to train and equip around 40,000 local fighters to “provide stability” in Syria.
