Turkey intends to create a “security zone” in northern Syria
Anadolu News Agency reports that the Turkish army, continuing the military operation “Euphrates Shield” (under this name, is the invasion of Syria), intends to create a “security zone” in the north of the SAR with a depth of at least 45 km from the Turkish border. This was said on the eve of the Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Yshik.
As part of Operation Euphrates Shield along the border with Turkey, the DAESh militants (banned in the Russian Federation) cleared a section of the Syrian territory up to 90 km and a depth of at least 20 km. Our armed forces intend to drive even deeper, displacing the militants. We will create a security zone in the north of Syria to a depth of 45 km and eliminate the threat to Turkish territory.
According to Yshik, the operation “Euphrates Shield” is also a set of measures to support the free Syrian army. The Turkish Defense Minister said that the armed forces of this very "army" with the support of the Turkish troops "are freeing terrorists from one locality after another." In particular, the other day the city of Dabik was “liberated” in northern Syria.
Attention is drawn to the fact that the settlements to which the Turkish army is coming, and in which at that time there are militants of the DAESH group (IG), these same militants are most often left without a fight. But fierce fighting goes on those areas that are partially or fully controlled by the Syrian Kurds.
Recall that the Turkish army carries out an invasion of Syria, violating all international norms - without the sanction of the UN Security Council and without the consent of the official Damascus.
