Every weapon obtained by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) constitutes a threat to Turkey, Turkish Foreign Minister Melvut Cavusoglu said on May 10.

The YPG and its female version YPJ are a core of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) operating in northern Syria alongside the Turkish-Syrian border.

The Pentagon announced on Tuesday that the administration of US President Donald Trump has approved a plan to directly arm Kurdish forces operating in Syria. Spokeswoman Dana W. White said the president made the decision Monday, describing the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) as “the only force on the ground that can successfully seize Raqqa in the near future.”

    Kurds are threat to all sovereign states in the region: Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Iran. Big problem on the horizon and imminent threat to the integrity of the Syrian state. Main military proxy behind US interests in ME.
