Tension in Syria – PKK Mobilized Its Forces, Erdogan Says Turkey Will Destroy Terrorists Regardless of U.S. Talks
PANAGYURISHTE, (BM) – Your briefly report on July 26 in last twelve hours from BulgarianMilitary.com:
Kurds mobilise forces in Syria, militants flee amid fear of Turkey invasion.
The Kurdish Peoples’ Protection Units (YPG), the Syrian wing of the internationally-recognised terrorist group the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK) in Turkey, is preparing its forces ahead of what it fears is a Turkish military operation in the region, MEMO reported.
Local sources in the area east of the Euphrates River reported on the deployment and mobilisation of the militia troops in the city of Ras Al-Ain in Hasakah province and the surrounding rural areas on Wednesday. The mobilisation has also reportedly been followed by raids into the nearby towns and villages, causing the widespread displacement of civilians from areas such as Tal Barak.
Erdogan says Turkey will destroy militants in north Syria regardless of U.S. talks
Turkey is determined to destroy the “terror corridor” east of the Euphrates river in Syria regardless of how talks conclude with the United States on a planned safe zone in the country’s north, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday, Reuters reported.
Turkey has ramped up its warnings of a possible incursion into northern Syria in recent days, saying it had run “out of patience” with Washington over the safe zone talks and adding that it would launch its operation if an agreement was not reached.
“Those who put their trust in foreign powers in the region will be put under ground,” Erdogan told members of his ruling AK Party. “We will find a lasting solution to terror.”
