Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced his readiness to launch a new anti-terrorist operation in Syria in order to “clear terrorists” of the territory bordering Turkey.
In the cities of Tell Rifat and Manbij, Kurdish rebels penetrate and pose a threat of shelling of Turkish territory.
Since the United States and Russia have not fulfilled their obligations to create a safe zone, the Turkish army is ready to launch an offensive in Syria.
Russia’s position in Syria has weakened significantly since the beginning of the war in Ukraine.
Turkey has been at war with the PKK (Kurdistan Workers’ Party) for many decades, and now the conflict has largely moved from the territory of Turkey to the border territory of Iraq and Syria, where the PKK units went, as well as other Kurdish formations close to them.
