BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – An unnamed Kurdish politician appealed to the Israeli government for assistance against the Turkish forces in northern Syria, the publication UAWire reported.
Citing the unnamed politician’s interview with Israeli Army Radio this week, the latter asked the Israeli government for help, pointing out if they do not, “the whole region will suffer” if no one stops the Turkish operation in Syria.
He also warned of severe consequences not only for the Middle East but for the whole world if former militants of the Islamic State group, who fled because of the Turkish invasion, will get out of Syria.
Earlier in the week, the Israeli Chief Rabbi David Lau called on Israeli President Reuven Rivlin to support the Syrian Kurds in their opposition to Turkish aggression. “These days, our hearts are with the Kurds, who are facing mass destruction,” said Lau.
The Turkish military launched Operation Peace Spring on October 9th. Since then, they have managed to capture several areas in northern Syria, including the border town of Tal Abyad.
