BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Tuesday that slammed the newly proposed safe zone in northern Syria that would be under the control of the Turkish forces.

According to the Syrian Foreign Minister, the recent statements by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan reveal that his regime only deals in the language of “occupation and aggression.”

An official source at Foreign and Expatriates Ministry told SANA in a statement that the “Turkish regime couldn’t be but an irresponsible, reckless regime that behaves in a way which contradicts with the simplest principles of the UN charter.”

“Syria affirms that any attempt to target its unity will be considered as clear aggression and an occupation of its territories as well as a support and protection for the international terrorism by Turkey,” the SANA source added.

The new Sultan does not know what the UN Charter stands for, he only knows power politics. He is the new head of the Ummah – all have to cede rights, money and territories.

Hopefully, the Ummah has no future :
Sahih Muslim Book 1 Hadith 271 : “It is narrated on the authority of Ibn ‘Umar (‘Abdullah b. ‘Umar) that the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) observed: Verily Islam started as something strange and it would again revert (to its old position) of being strange just as it started, and it would recede between the two mosques just as the serpent crawls back into its hole.”

Keep calm and fu*k Shitskey (aka Turkey). Such a filthy, revolting country with criminal heritages, murder, prosecution, immense discrimination, genocide and barbaric expansion. Turks are lower than dogs and deserve to be spat on. Then know nothing about peace, love, mercy and compassion. To call these complete bastards… animals would be a total insult to animals, and if those Turks don’t like to hear the truth then they can sit on my middle finger 😉

Syria should seriously consider to aid SDF in the border area, even in case of no deal. In case Turkey takes the region, or only just the border region, Syria will lose that region forever, as Turkey will loot the area, steal the oil, the water, the produce and will displace the population. It will be a new Hatay. Kurds might not be Assad ‘ s favourites, but they are syrian and want to remain Syrian and should be supported in that. What matters they do not wan to be ruled by a dictator. Compromise. Goes for both sides.

This is not the enemy of my enemy case. This is my enemy is also enemy of my enemy. Turkey and Kurds are both the same and both of them are USA-puppets (turkey just pretend not to be so). Both of them must be controlled, Turkey must go back home in Idlib and Afrin, and Kurds must become Syria citizens and forget their idependent country.

Kurds are yet to show interest in remaining in Syria, they are quite determined to have a state of their own problem is, they are counting on majority Arab population to achieve this goal

I can only fully agree. Turkey has grown as a very serious issue and a major trouble-maker.

The Kurds bear a great deal of the blame for this. If they hadn’t betrayed Syria for foreign imperialist powers, none of this would be possible.
