Clashes between Turkish and Syrian forces are beneficial for certain countries in the Middle East

50
The press service of the Turkish President drew attention to the fact that in the foreign media the Turkish operation "Peaceful Source" is described as an operation against the Syrian Kurds. According to the head of the Turkish presidential press service, Ibrahim Kalyn, this is a "deeply erroneous interpretation."



Ibrahim Kalyn:

The militants PYD / YPG (RPK - Kurdistan Workers Party, which is considered terrorist in Turkey - approx. “VO”) fundamentally changed demographics in northeastern Syria. The whole world has turned a blind eye to this. We want the Arabs and Kurds, Muslims and Christians to live in peace and good neighborliness both with us and at our borders - without oppression by the PKK in Syria.

The same official added that the “ruling regime” is also engaged in “oppression” of the people in Syria.

Kalyn stated that the Turkish operation "is not directed against the Kurdish people, but against the terrorists who are hiding behind the Kurdish people." In Ankara, they said that "they know the states that are profitable to present the operation against terrorists as an operation against the Kurds."

Meanwhile, Turkish troops and units controlled by them, the SSA ("Syrian Free Army") continue the operation in the north-east of the SAR. A video of striking vehicles and the positions of Kurdish armed groups appears on the network.

The destruction of the truck from the air and the entrance to the underground tunnel is shown:



And the Syrian army continues its advance in the province of Hasek. In this regard, the question arises from experts: will the situation come to a direct clash between the SAA and the Turkish armed forces? So far, both Ankara and Damascus have extremely harsh rhetoric regarding each other. In response to Kalyn’s statements about "oppression of peoples in northern Syria by the Syrian regime" in Damascus, they said that Turkish troops were occupying the territory of an independent state.

Experts do not hide the fact that the clash of troops of Syria and Turkey is in the interests of individual countries of the Middle East, as well as in the interests of the United States. Regional powers in this regard are primarily understood as Israel and Saudi Arabia, which clearly do not want to see both Assad and Erdogan gain, and therefore are able to benefit in the event of a direct clash between the armies of Syria and Turkey. For obvious reasons, military conflict can weaken both Assad’s power and Erdogan’s power. The governments of these countries (not counting the United States) so far prefer to refrain from commenting on this matter.

        GDP "keeps" Erdogan on a short leash

        Erdogan is kept on a short leash by the circumstances that have developed recently in connection with his confrontation with the United States and some EU countries. GDP only takes advantage of this, the question is how long and how events will generally develop in the future. Syria alone will not prevail over Turkey, will it fit into our country again? This Erdogan is another present, he says one thing, does another, but generally thinks that.

              I’m much more interested in what will happen to the relations of the Turks with Europe after this initiative.

              And the Syrians should never be allowed to confront the Turks directly. Because they will roll them out, diplomatic channels must be activated.

                  Very easy to perceive. I was asking about this at 13 or 14 years ago one "our" living there. How do they in Israel relate to the "Arab nation" and the ISIS march, then still mainly in Iraq. He replied in a half-whisper for some reason, "As long as they themselves are at war with each other, everything is fine. Let them cut each other as much as they want. We are not afraid of ISIS, this is not a state of any kind, but gangs of bandits, but we have a border and experience in fighting all sorts of donkey-lovers-terrorists. For us the strong states of Syria and Iraq posed a significantly greater threat. " So they throw wood into the fire as best they can.

        The same official added that the “ruling regime” is also engaged in “oppression” of the people in Syria. (From the text) And the evil Cypriots also oppressed the unfortunate Turks, and therefore Turkey occupied northern Cyprus. The worst thing is that Turkey is not going to carry out the de-occupation of this territory. The same will be with Syrian Kurdistan. This is well understood in the ATS and therefore they have such a tough reaction. History has shown that the Janissary leaves the country only under the force of a bayonet, not because of any promises or agreements.

          You made two mistakes. 1. "And the evil Cypriots also oppressed the unfortunate Turks and therefore Turkey and occupied northern Cyprus" Yes, they oppressed, and Turkey as a guarantor country (three guarantors in Cyprus, Greece, Britain and Turkey), saving them is not something that oppression, but from destruction. 2. "The worst thing is that Turkey is not going to de-occupy this territory. The same will happen with Syrian Kurdistan." It will not be the same, since Turkey recognizes Syria and its borders, in contrast to the Republic of Cyprus, which Turkey does not recognize as a state.

            You yourself do not believe in what you write because under international law, no state has the right to intervene without the authorization of the UN Security Council. Turkey received such sanctions or an invitation from the Syrian government?
            And so you know, there is no whole nation - a terrorist. It’s just that Turkey, on the pretext of its security, carries out the genocide of the Syrian Kurds and for one releases the ISIS prisoners, with whom it cooperated perfectly until September 30, 2015, providing all of the Turkish border infrastructure - it is understood with mutual benefit.
            And at the expense of the Republic of Cyprus - it is recognized by all UN countries (with the exception of Turkey) and is a member of the EU, and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus is not recognized by any UN country except Turkey, which reflects its commitment to international law. What prevents Turkey from proclaiming recognition of Syria and its borders, as is the case with the Republic of Cyprus.

              1. There is Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, which provides for each member state of the United Nations inalienable right to individual and collective self-defense. Taking into account the requirements of the UN Charter, we can conclude that the criterion of necessity is the advisability in each case of using the armed force necessary to protect the vital interests of the state, restore its security and repel an armed attack when there is no or no other acceptable options to curb an armed attack. The threshold of necessity is a border incident.
              2. According to the 1998 Adan Agreement, Turkey may “take the necessary security measures if its national security is in jeopardy”. In 2010, the Adan Agreement was amended.
              3. The fact of genocide is determined by the UN special commission and the international tribunal in The Hague if documentary evidence of the genocide is presented.

                Maybe the Adan Agreement says anything about the possibility of creating a buffer zone in Syria or about military operations of the Turks to a depth of 35 km, or is there any kind of armed attack on Turkey from the Syrian side?
                "UN, April 13, 2015 / TASS correspondent Oleg Zelenin /. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon considers the persecution of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire a" brutal crime ", but he is in no hurry to use the term" genocide ", urging countries to continue cooperation in order to establish facts in regarding the events of 100 years ago. This position was stated to journalists on Monday by the official representative of the UN Secretary General, Stephan Dujarrick. "
                For over a century documentary evidence has been collected, nevertheless it was a "brutal crime".

          In general, that the evil Cypriots, led by the junta of "black colonels" on July 15, 1974, carried out a military coup in the country, which was carried out by units of the Cypriot National Guard and the Greek (!) Army and headed for the entry of Cyprus into Greece - enosis. The putschists seized the capital's airport, radio station, the presidential palace, a number of administrative institutions in Nicosia and established their power. And control over the island passed to Nikos Sampson, a representative of the Greek underground organization EOKA-B, which advocated the annexation of Cyprus to Greece. The Greek military, together with the Cypriots, began the massacre in Turkish villages, you just don't know about it, because the Russian media, of course, do not cover it. This meant a completely blatant violation of the "Agreement on guarantees" concluded between Greece, England and Turkey, these states were the GUARANTEES of performance. And Turkey, as a guarantor, had every right to send troops and protect the Turkish population.

            Guarantor countries are obliged to guarantee the integrity of a particular state, and not to carry out aggression against that state.
            Let’s say that the evil Greek Cypriots slaughtered the Turks and the indignant Turkey prepared and carried out a huge landing operation within five days - this is not possible to achieve in such a short time. Just the preparations were made for this operation for many years and, using the unsuccessful coup, invaded Cyprus. h. The massacre of the Turkish Cypriots is frankly lying Turkish propaganda, the Greeks in that situation were not up to the Turkish Cypriots, especially since these two peoples lived very harmoniously.

        Not everything is so simple. The Americans left because they did not see any further prospect of holding these areas. They act on the principle of "so don't get you to anyone," better to the Turks than the CAA and Russian influence. Most likely the Pentagon and the CIA foresaw that the Kurds would ask Assad's defense, but Erdogan missed. We will observe the further development of events. The Turkish militants will most likely have clashes with the Syrian army, but not large-scale. It will not come to war.

      For me, the blogger El Murid described this situation very accurately (quote):
      "This impending war may have a very curious name" Partner. "Our Turkish partners, with the consent of our American partners, seize the territory of the country of our partner Syria. Probably, we will again have to switch to Uzbek and Azerbaijani tomatoes." (end of quote)

      PS There, for complete "happiness", there is not enough open intervention of Israel (it is clear that they will not openly, since it is difficult to blame them for stupidity) and KSA. That would be completely unclear - who is for whom and against whom. Initially, all partners and everything is decorous and noble. That's just, the whole "partner idyll" is spoiled a little by some "insignificant trifle" that the interests of "partners" are different. hi

      So Turkey, and so in fact, attacked Syrian Kurdistan like Germany, at one time Poland (formerly seizing Western Ukraine and Western Belarus, and now Kurdistan, which had previously seized the northern lands of Syria from Syria). Syria is now doing what Syrian Kurdistan is doing The USSR did at one time with Western Ukraine and Western Belarus - it liberates previously lost lands. Kurds were also thrown as Poland was thrown at one time, although they promised to protect. Erdogan’s ambitions in Syria do not end there.

      Erdogan got into a mousetrap in vain for a piece of cheese (a piece of Syria). This is a trap. 100%. They want to use Turkey in the dark, having clashed with Iran. As the Americans had pushed Germany and the USSR between themselves at the time through diplomacy, but the Union had the strength to withstand and not repeat the fate of Germany. They also want to do the same now. That Turkey and Iran destroyed each other , and Saudi Arabia and Israel would have been a plus, and the Americans would have finished off both Turkey and Iran as a result of the conflict. Syria is just a fuse.

    The situation with Turkey, the Kurds and Syria is very difficult. And it is possible that Russia will be involved in these squabbles, which is not good primarily for Russia. There is nothing and no one there to die for Russian servicemen. Erdogan has long dreamed of bending the whole region under him, Assad also does not always behave adequately towards Russia, which essentially saved him from the fate of Saddam Hussein. In general, one would not have to pay too much for a piece of land rented from Syria. Moreover, Russia is unlikely to receive a substantial gain from this lease.

    All this rhetoric of Assad and Erdogan is just a show and a blurring of the eyes of Amers. Assad and Erdogan have one goal in this case. Remove Amers from Syria and curb the Kurds so that they would not dream of their state. Yankers are felled from Syria, Kurds are asked under Assad’s wing , the mission, in principle, was completed as a maximum of a week to consolidate the effect and the next runaways to GDP with the question: - Chef, what will we do next. laughing

    Israel really needs a continuation of the conflict, because the peace process in Syria will free up funds and people from pro-Iranian forces. So it’s logical to wait for a provocation with the participation of unknown forces, I think the Turks will explode the barracks with military personnel, fly to the airport directly in Turkey, the department store will explode and find Syrian passports ................... in fact, no matter how it will be, it remains to wait
