BERIUT, LEBANON (12:10 P.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has threatened to resume military operations in the eastern region of the Euphrates River Valley if the Syrian Kurds do not abide by the ceasefire.

“We will launch the military operation again if the ceasefire is not adhered to,” Erdogan threatened.

He then turned his attention to Idlib, where he said that if the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) violates the cease, the Turkish forces will step in to stop them.

“Previously, the Syrian regime was violating the ceasefire, but now the situation is different,” Erdogan said in a speech on Tuesday, saying that “Preventing the violence practiced by the regime is the responsibility of everyone, and this time we are determined to stop its violations in Idlib.”

He also warned that if the displaced people in Idlib were not allowed to return to their homes that his country’s armed forces would get involved.

The Master of HTS and other alphabet-soup jihadists in Idlib and a dear friend to ISIS is finally revealing his true face and intentions, what happened to the preserving the integrity of Syria BS he was spouting the other day? His MB GNA is getting squeezed out of Libya as well so soon we will have tens of thousands of homeless jihadists turning back to their mother Turkey and asking for their services and loyalty to be cashed in, let see how the Master likes that?

Kurds are the ones not allowing people back not Syrian government. Syria needs all its people minus the foreigner you brought specifically chinese Jihadists. You best take them home else they’ll face SAA guns.

He does not want millions of more refugees and fears Jihadi dogs will come home. He will step up efforts sending more Libya and after their deafest in Idlib he’ll move them to NE Syria to take oil fields.
