BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:50 P.M.) – The French military reportedly entered northern Syria via the Tal Abyad crossing that is controlled by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Kurdistan 24 News reported today.

Citing the Joint Chief of Defense for Syrian Kurdistan, Razan Gilo, Kurdistan 24 claimed that at least 50 French soldiers entered the Syrian border-town of Tal Abyad this morning.

The French soldiers were said to have also deployed to northeastern Aleppo town of Manbij, which is also controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces.

This news comes just days after the French magazine, Marianne, leaked a report claiming French President Emmanuel Macron told a PYD delegation that France was sending troops to northern Syria to block a Turkish attack on Manbij.

Hello! It is is 21st century! USA entered Syria on the daily basis lies that fights ISIS. However, right now French solders are entering Syria NOT to fight ISIS. So, what’s the legal reason they would come up with invading a sovereign country without UN mandate, nor Syrian government approval. As, Putin said in one of his late interviews: “Some of western countries (he didn’t specify which ones) think international law doesn’t affect them. According to them international law must be followed by everybody else excluding them”… Here is a perfect example!

All 5 victor countries of WW II act like that. They are permanent members of the UNSC. They can veto the consequences.

Yep.
Just for precision’s sake:
– Russia did it rarely (Krim, Donbass and even then only to defend Russians stranded in foreign countries out of USSR fall)
– China never did that (unless you count border disputes in Mongolia, Cachemir, and Philippine/Taiwan islands).
– UK+France+USA did it dozen times with devastating bloodshed. And with no lawful interest at play, just because.
– Turkey and Israel did that, just without veto power.

Putin’s stance is that force is the last resort choice, after common (int’l) rules fail to perform. That stays sane thinking.

p.s.: France… victors? I always shake my head at that, puzzled.

Turkey invaded Syria pointing out the same reason as Americans used to invade Syria – fight against terrorism. PKK is recognized as a terrorist organization by UN, EU, USA, France, Rusia, Turkey and almost the whole world. However, right now French solders are invading Syria (sovereign country member of UN) with only one goal – to fight on the same side PKK is fighting (terrorist organization) against Turkey (NATO member and French ally). So, obviously French are in Syria right now against any written international law. In other words, France believes it’s exempted from the international law…

Terorrists are the Turkish mercenaries from FSA and ISIS also If Turkey isen’t in NATO, nobody of EU or USA would recognize PKK as terrorist org. Now, almost all countries of the world has recognize and condem turkish genocides against Greeks, Armenians and Kurds, imagine what kind of counry Turkey is, so their alies don’t trust them !

USR : and Putin thinks and does exactly the same! Georgia, Ukraine… And China has land disputes with 18 countries and still occupies illegally Tibet… Stern : any way, the “Big Five” would just need to leave the UN and they’d be out of reach too, but it’d become far more complicated as actions would be totally unleashed without any public debate and a structure where to make diplomacy work… For sure, system is far from being perfect but… Two world wars in 25 years in 1st half of XXth century, now X-fingers it will last, preferably forever, but nothing… Read more »

Emmanuel Moron overstepping his limits. So now we know the reason for all those false flag terror attacks in France – I hope SAA repeats Dien Bien Phu for them.

Is their a place called Dien Bien Phu or Waterloo in Syria. Macron used to work for the Banque Rothschild owned by the family with this name, and a forefather of this family obtained the Balfour Declaration, the start of the zionist project.
