Damascus Condemns Turkish Operation In Northeast Syria, Holds SDF Responsible

File image

Syria has condemned the planned Turkish military operation in the country’s northeastern region, holding the U.S.-backed Kurdish forces responsible for this escalation.

A source in the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates told the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) on October 9 that any Turkish operation in the region will be a violation of the international law and a blatant breach of the International Security Council’s resolutions.

“The hostile behavior of Erdogan’s regime appears clearly through the Turkish expansionist ambitions in the Syrian territories, and it couldn’t be justified under any pretext, and what the Turkish regime claims regarding the security of the borders is refuted by this regime’s ignorance of Adana Agreement,” the source said.

Reached in 1998, the Adana agreement address the security concerns of both countries and provides a set of measures to secure the border.

The unnamed Syrian source went on to hold Kurdish forces in northeast Syria responsible for the upcoming Turkish invasion of the region.

“The Syrian Arab Republic holds some of the Kurdish organizations responsible for what is taking place due to their subordination to the U.S. project as they have been previously warned during the meetings with them against the dangers of that project and to not be tools serving the U.S. policy against their homeland, but these organizations have insisted on being tools in the hands of foreigners,” SANA quoted the source as saying.

The source concluded the statement by stressing that Syria will confront “the Turkish aggression” by all legitimate means. The source also promised that the government will welcome all of its “misled citizens” if they return to the righteous road in a way that would guarantee Syria’s unity and territorial integrity.

These remarks came as Turkey is finishing its preparations for the planned operation in northeast Syria. The country’s Foreign Minister revealed earlier that the Damascus government will be informed about the operation.

      Crocodile tears that is.

  • Icarus Tanović

    Erdogan’s regime, that is a best expression for Turkish government today, as SANA reported above. Better yet CIAs guy’s regime.
    He knows very too well that he’s in knee deep mud if he crosses the border…

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The Turkeys invaded Syria with full Americunt and Zionist support. There is no way they will ever hand over the best agricultural lands of Syria which they have coveted since Ottoman era. It is a sad day for Syria which is being carved up, by Turkeys, how ironic.

  • Kell McBanned

    Well its finally happening, some of us here have been saying for years this will be the inevitable result of the Kurds actions, its a shame all round.

    • Agreed. Still though, I prefer Turkey over U.S. in that part of Syria. As we saw in Idlib, Syria could launch operation there and just ignore Turkish forces. Can’t do that for the territories occupied by PKK though.

      • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

        i prefer SAA over all :)))

        • We all do. I long for the days where we see the only red on the map.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            Same

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Let me tell you kids some hard FACTS.The Zionist scum occupied Golan since 1967 and the Syrians and the Arab leak (league of faggots) has been condemning that for 50 years now, while backstabbing each other from Libya to Yemen. There is no question that Turkey will get away with the occupation of northern Syria, just like it did with Cyprus. It is a key linchpin of NATO and Zionists and the Kurds are nothing but expendable worthless nuisance who fail to understand their pathetic situation.

        • What i meant was there is a possibility of Russia pursuading Turkey to leave these lands (we saw how Syria gained ground in Idlib as an example). But with US and Kurds thay chance is 0%.

          Thats why i prefer Turkey over US.

        • AM Hants

          Cyprus and the Turkish invasion, was all part of an Operation Gladio exercise. This time Turkey are working against the Greater Israel Project Crowd.

      Gassad?Still believe cnn stories idiot?

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Kurds are pawns of Zionism.

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    SAA should fight off and attack invading torki forces, this will show to the SDF they are serious about protecting their land, and will give clear message that they can be trusted to be re-integrated into syria proper

  • John

    I am not taking any of this just on the surface. The main objective is to get the US out of Northern Syria and then anything else can be worked out later. It has taken a big step in that direction today. The hint on this is that the complaint regarding Turkey is, pretty bland and the blame being laid on the SDF tells me tons. Well played SAA and Co.!! My take folks, I wish well to all.

    • AM Hants

      With you there. Especially as the SDF had the chance to work with Syria and Russia, but, turned it down for the US. Once the area is cleared, I am waiting to see what Turkey does next. Especially if Turkey is more than happy to be thrown out of NATO for her actions. Which would be a blessing, however you look at it.

  • Xoli Xoli

    For now Damascus must stay out of this and clearing Idlib.Once The fight between terrorists leaders stop between SDF=ISIS and Turkey =ISIS.Then Humanitarian corridors must be open and terrorists destroyed thereafter at the border region.

  • Xoli Xoli

    This fight is just between terrorists masters.One day USA France,Britain,Saudi and Israel will destroy Turkey just as it happen to Saddam,Gaddafi, Milosevic, Hariri,Arrafat,Mubarak, Sissi, Bashir, Haiti President. Sakasvilli and Poroshenko, Bolton and many more.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    Well, Syria instead of issuing condemnations need to fight for its land. The Turkeys have annexed almost 40% of Syria and may even be more emboldened. It is a shame as I had predicted that Syria has been left high and dry as everyone has their own agenda.
