BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:25 P.M.) – The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) responded to Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s threats regarding a potential military operation to expel them from eastern and northern Syria.

Military intervention is “not a solution that can lead to results,” SDF spokesperson Kino Gabriel told Reuters News Agency on Thursday.

“Any military solution, as far as the SDF is concerned, will lead to more losses and destruction and difficulties for the Syrian people,” Kino added.

During an interview with Russia Today on Wednesday, Assad stated that he would not hesitate to retake the land controlled by the US-backed forces.

“The only problem left in Syria is the SDF,” Assad said.

“We’re going to deal with it by two options,” he said.

“The first one: we started now opening doors for negotiations. Because the majority of them are Syrians, supposedly they like their country, they don’t like to be puppets to any foreigners,” Assad added.

The USA always do destroy their puppets after using them. USA will reconciliate with Turkey and the Kurds will not have happy days then.

Genocidal mass murderers have a habit of blaming others for their own crimes. Asshat is no different in that respect from Erdogoon.
