DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:15 P.M.) – Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, stated on Tuesday that his army entered Syria in order to end the reign of Syrian President, Bashar Al-Assad, and bring justice to Syrians.

“Why did we enter? We do not have an eye on Syrian soil. The issue is to provide lands to their real owners. That is to say we are there for the establishment of justice. We entered there to end the rule of the tyrant al-Assad who terrorizes with state terror. [We didn’t enter] for any other reason,” Erdogan stated.

Erdogan alleges nearly 1 million people have died in Syria, despite the fact no monitoring or humanitarian group has put the death toll this high.

“In my estimation, nearly 1 million people have died in Syria. These deaths are still continuing without exception for children, women and men. Where is the United Nations? What is it doing? Is it in Iraq? No. We preached patience but could not endure in the end and had to enter Syria together with the Free Syrian Army [FSA],” Erdoğan said at the first Inter-Parliamentary Jerusalem Platform Symposium in Istanbul.

The Turkish Army illegally entered Syria in August 2016, claiming that they were focused on defeating the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) in northern Aleppo; this did not prove to be the case, as they have repeatedly attacked the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) near the border.

Now we see his true face, he pulled away the veil! Now, let’s see if the Pantsirs and S-300s work well… Thus, it looks like a dangerous escalation and, especially as most of the experimented leadership of the Turkish army has been either jailed or fired, including 350 of their pilots, making THK with less pilots than they have aircraft (!) but htngs are likely to go much further due to the genocidal tendencies Erdogan has about the Kurds : the destruction of several Kurdish towns in Turkey is fuelling unrest and near the third of Turkish population is actually… Read more »

Haha, he is funny. The Russian army is finally going to tested the S-300 and S-400 anti-air missile system and for reminder his army is going have to fight YPG, SAA and Iraki army at the same time.

Yes it is true, I forgot to mention Iran and Hizbullah, on the other hand I do not believe that he would dare to attacked SAA because he will fight the war alone. No one will send army to help him neither the EU nor USA

In fact, as SDF/YPG are openly backed by both the US and the EU which have SOFs embedded with while US Green Berrets (CIA SOFs) have withdrawn from Euphrates s**t, I don’t feel that muricans, Germans or Frenchs will appreciate THK bombing their militaries or the Firtinas shelling them for long. All I can say is that the destruction of Sirka in Turkish Kurdistan was broadcasted on national TV and everyone sees the habitual Turkish genocidal instinct coming as big as a truck. It’s not a problem to understand how high the Sultan is in EU’s public opinion, just use… Read more »

Note that the US withdraw their SOFs embeded Euphrates s**t last week while they are still embedded with SDF. Is it a sign that Turkey will have no support at all?

SecGen of the Arab League, Ahmed Abu Gheit, condemns Turkish President Erdogan for his country’s entry into Iraq and Syria !!!!!!! Wow! With both NATO and US govt having told him to not intervene and that this move didn’t fell under art.5 of NATO while the US and the EU are backing YPG and such invasion is illegal regarding international laws, including the project of overthrowing a head of state, the Turkish move is likely to become unsustainable and escalate in a regional conflict! Add to this that although there seemingly isn’t no action now, Egypt is supportive to Assad.… Read more »

La destrucción del campo de entrenamiento del los norteamericanos e ingleses en la zona de Tall Tamur ( Tel Temir ) en la provincia siria de Al-Hasakah y en el que murieron varios instructores britanicos, yanquis y decenas de miembros del PKK, parece ser la respuesta de Ankara al bombardeo que la semana pasada destruyo un campamento temporal turco en el norte de Alepo y que en principio se adjudicó a Damasco, que lo desmintió rápidamente. Las consecuencias de ambas acciones en las que unos y otros han preferido no hacer declaraciones y el futuro del conflicto en donde las… Read more »

It’d be better if you wrote in English. I needed a translation tool as the one on this pages seems not to work with Spanish language. I didn’t knew about this strike against in fact an YPG (and not PKK) camp with Brit/Yankee instructors as I didn’t came to learn about until now shows that Gollum is facing very serious troubles, now, his moves to buy weapons from Russia changes nothing, it’s more his habitual ways to try to blackmail and as he’s pissing off everybody as, at the same time, he’s f*****g up Russian efforts in both Ukraine and… Read more »

Erdogan the dreamer.
If in your own house you do not prevail what makes you believe that you will be in someone else’s house!
The only thing that you will achieve in Syria with that attitude is to unite Kurds and no Kurds along with all their allies in one letal force to kick your b**t out of Syria with all your sick pretensions my friend.

How does one respond to this pig? Thousands are dead by his hand! May he be cursed and may sores erupt from his genitals, may his nation of dogs burn, may holy Russia bomb the s**t out of your cowardly, murderous, and God hating soldiers. Long live Syria, long live Armenia, long live the Kurdish people and may they one day have their nation on the soil of eastern Anatolia. Rather harsh I guess, my apologies to the cowardly Turks who let this pig rule them, it’s not your fault that you are a nation of sheep. Baaaah, baaah, he… Read more »

Eurasia could establish its own bloc against NATO but Turkey needs to update her leader for that. Also India and Pakistan to stop murder of each other’s soldiers. Otherwise, Asia will never obtain the peace.

Actually, EU has more strategic and geopolitic interests in common with Russia, even in terms of culture, BTW, than with the US and this is also true for Russia which has more in common with the EU than with Asia, even if there are much more lands in Asia, these being underpopulated and underdeveloped, but well, the climate is not really man-friendly…

1 million dead? The time to write it, its 2. The time you read it its 3. The time you ask you if it is true, it is 20.
But the time you will try to say it is false, impossible, the earth will be erased.
