BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:10 A.M.) – According to Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, the regime in Ankara is untrustworthy and any Turkish soldier on Syrian soil is considered an “attacker” by the Damascus government.

The statement by the Syrian president came during a very recent address to government officials in which he clarified his party’s official stance on the Turkish issue.

Bashar al-Assad was noted having said that the Ankara regime was not considered a strategic partner by Damascus and that, on the whole, the Syrian government does not trust Turkey.

Furthermore, the Syrian leader stated that Turkish regime forces on the soil of Syria are considered to be invaders.

The statement by president Bashar al-Assad comes not long after Ankara claims to have ceased funding Islamist rebels in Syria as a step towards re-approaching Damascus. This led some analysts to speculate that there would be a grand reconciliation between the Syrian and Turkish leaderships. In any case, the Syrian president has cleared up the official stance of his government on the matter.

Syria should have never removed all those mines from its border with Turkey. That was done just a few years before Turkey started covertly aided the set-up of the war against syria.

And who funds/back the jihadists and mercenaries who are ravaging Syria for 6 years? Turkey, Saudi-Arabia, Qatar, UK and… Uncle Sam… BTW, the 2013 Goutha massacre was, according to OPCW+Massachusetts’ Institute of Technology ballistic expert, performed using Sarin from Gaddafi’s stockpile and the shells were shot from an area jointly held by al-Nusra and Jaysh-al-Islam. The nefarious JaI is well known to be a Turkish/KSA proxy, al-Jubeir and Erdogan jointly labelled the death of their leader as a tragedy. JaI is also well known to put Alevi or Shiite women and children in cages on the roof of their HQ… Read more »

Turkey only took the wealthy cream. And is part of the problem that started the war. And Turkey has a history of genocides that carry on until today.

Note that Erdogan and Assad had previously signed a free trade/free border-crossing treaty… This greatly helped to smuggle jihadists, mercenaries and armament into Syria…
