Erdogan announced a military operation in Syria

Turkey officially launched a military operation in northern Syria. The information was confirmed by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, noting that the military operation will not be directed against Syria itself, and its aim is to strike at the Kurds, which in Ankara are equated with terrorist gangs.

Speaking about the military operation in Syria, the Turkish Foreign Minister noted that Ankara will adhere to the following provisions:

  • the region will be cleared of terrorists,
  • security of the borders of Syria and territorial integrity will be guaranteed,
  • displaced people can safely return to their homes,
  • peace and security will prevail in the region.

Among other things, Turkey has deployed near the borders with Syria short-range air defense systems, the purpose of which, obviously, is to provide protection against possible US interference.

Russian military refused to help the Kurds

Russia has stated that it will not intervene in the Turkish military operation against the Kurds, stressing that in reality, the Russian military is in Syria for completely different reasons.

At the same time, experts believe that such a statement applies solely to the case if Turkey adheres to a previously drawn up plan.
