The Pentagon warned Ankara against attacking the Kurds in Syria

33
Turkey’s plans to launch an offensive in northeastern Syria are unacceptable and cause Washington’s concern. Interfax Pentagon spokesman statement by Sean Robertson.



The Pentagon regards such actions as unacceptable.
declared Robertson.

He recalled that in this area is located the US military contingent. American servicemen are working there with opposition groups of “democratic forces”, including the National Self-Defense Forces (YPG), which are considered terrorist in Turkey.

Thus, the offensive of the Turkish army will pose a threat to the US military, Robertson, adding that in this regard, consultations on coordination of efforts with the Turkish side are necessary.

As YPG representative Nuri Mahmoud noted in his turn, Turkey’s offensive will only benefit terrorists, since it will thwart the operation of the opposition forces to liberate the city of Gadzhin from the IG (banned in the Russian Federation).

Recall, on Wednesday, the Turkish leader Recep Erdogan said that in a few days the armed forces would launch an offensive operation east of the Euphrates River.

The time has come to implement our decision to eradicate the terrorist groups east of the Euphrates,
said the president.

According to him, this step will contribute to a political resolution of the Syrian crisis.

Earlier it was reported about the decision of the Pentagon to create observation posts in Syria near the Turkish border in order to prevent an armed clash between the Turks and the Kurdish militia.

        A NATO member will attack a NATO member. According to Art. 5 of the NATO Charter, the remaining NATO member countries will have to declare war on one of these NATO members ... wassat (Estonia in this situation will probably be the last ...) laughing

          The clash of interests between the United States and Turkey in Syria takes on a real military outlook.

            the Turks are being held back (for now) by the Americans, to be honest. if not for them, then the Turks would have landed on the islands long ago. so the Turks have this mess in their hands. their hands will be untied in two places at once, in Syria and here from the side of the Evros River. although there everything is against them, even nature, but they can land on the islands .. for example, on Lezbo or on Rodo, Itself ... and the Greeks did not just threaten, we already left the NATO bloc once. the second time if we leave, then probably we will start a war with the Turks, immediately after leaving the alliance.

        There is no particular hope for ISIS. So it would be more correct to add YPG and SDF.

    Erdogan has his own game ... while he is on his way with Russia, because He demonstratively wants to show the United States who is the boss in the region, plus he perfectly remembers who wanted to arrange a coup d'etat in Turkey, and eliminate him.

    I wonder how our Defense Ministry will react to this matter. So no one invited the Turks to Syria either .. And if Erdogan squeezed out the Americans and other riffraff, then Assad would have to squeeze out the Turks themselves, and this is not an example harder ..

    What is that supposed to mean?

      The United States has 22 bases and so-called observation posts in Syria. And they built 12 of them along the Syrian border with Turkey. These are partly Kurdish areas, and partly Arab, which the Kurds also captured (for example, the city of Moonbridge). And the most interesting is that in many nab.points, the Americans installed radars directed towards Turkey. That is, they intend to protect these terrorists from Turkey. Kurdish terrorists irritated the Turks anyway, and Americans doubled their irritations. You will see that the Turks will enter the eastern part of the Euphrates and expel the terrorists and make amers put up with this fact.

    Guys, you somehow decide. Or PKK, SDF terrorist organizations. With all that it implies ...... Either your trading partner and ally illegally occupies part of your friendly state and wants to expand the zone of occupation. Either a cross or panties.

      Turkey has always been and is a supporter of a unified Syria. But until Syria can restore order in the country, especially on the northern border, where Kurdish PKK organizations, SDF, armed to the teeth with US weapons and intending to create a Kurdish state with the help of the United States, are about 28% of the territory of Syria. According to Turkish intelligence, the United States provided the PKK and SDF with about 20 thousand full trucks with weapons and supplies (mainly through Iraq). For this, 3000 flights by cargo planes have been made before this day. I’m saying that the extent of the danger was clear for Turkey, for Iran, and for the Russian troops, if that.

    Erdogan is a player, his intentions often remain intentions. He promised to break Israel's promise, promised and slowly merged. For him, a good show, more expensive than money!

      In vain you say so. Erdogan said I’ll take the women, took. Erdogan said Afrin will take, took. Erdogan said Idlib will control (took means), control. If he says that the Eastern Euphrates will come, it means sooner or later and it will go there. what he said until this day, almost did everything.
