A Turkish official speaking on anonymity told Reuters that Turkey had no plans for an incursion in Syria.

“Turkey does not have any plans or thoughts of staging a military campaign or ground incursion in Syria,” a senior Turkish government official said.

He did continue to blame Moscow however for an escalation in the Syrian war.

“Turkey is part of a coalition, is working with its allies, and will continue to do so. As we have repeatedly said, Turkey will not act unilaterally,” the official added.

The statement was promoted because Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said Moscow registered “a growing number of signs of hidden preparation of the Turkish Armed Forces for active actions on the territory of Syria.”

Sultan Regeb will act as part of a coalition. Saudi & other sheiks already pledged support on the ground. IS holds the oil rich desert corridor which they coveted all along.
