BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – During a press conference at Ataturk International Airport in Istanbul, Turkish President Recep Tayyip stated that his armed forces will retaliate if the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continues its attacks on the Turkish observation posts in Idlib.

“Turkey will not remain silent if the Syrian regime continues to attack observation points in Idlib,” Erdogan said.

The Turkish military currently has 12 observation points in northwestern Syria. The Syrian Arab Army has accused the Turkish military of using these observation posts to block their advance in northwestern Syria.

In regards to the situation in Manbij, Erdogan claimed the U.S. did not fulfill its promises to expel the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) from the town; however, he said they will continue with his nation’s plans there.

“Our partner, the U.S., did not keep its promise on Manbij […] However, it doesn’t mean that we give up on the Manbij issue, we keep all our plans and we will continue to do.”

Erdogan is scheduled to meet with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in Japan later this month; they will likely discuss the ongoing situation in northwestern Syria.

And he’s moreover trying poorly to do a false flag bias! What a pity! Before AKP, Turkey had a blossoming economy, was a democracy about to enter the EU… Now it has became a rogue state led by a petty Führer believing himself the Mahdi while his economy is collapsing, thanks to his incompetence alone. Now, IMHO, 23 June Constantinople election will be even more rigged. The previous one was also rigged, but they didn’t thought it’d be a so huge defeat, nevertheless, it won’t change anything : with 24% interests at the central bank, you simply can’t consider building… Read more »

Lol! Could not have said it any better! My thoughts are perfectly aligned with yours! It’s a shame, because all this damage could have been avoided if the Turkish AF F16 pilot had shot down the Gulfstream when he had the chance.

It’s clear that AKP = Muslim Brotherhood, and its “sultan” calling the Nazi regime an “effective form of government”, are both veeeeeeeeeeery democratic, we’ve seen this with the cancellation of municipal election in Constantinople.

With EU money which he spent more at buying oil from ISIS, which then funded terror attacks in the EU, and hadn’t he used his proxies to invade Syria, there’d be no refugees! Jerusalem is quoted ZERO times in Coran, but I own a best-seller, the book the most sold ever, guess what, this 2 millennia old book says Jerusalem is… Jew! BTW, there is no “P” in Arabic… “Palestina” is the Latinisation of Hebrew word Paleshet which means… INVADER!!! It’s high time for Falestinians to go back in their country of origin, same for Gazans… Hamas minister Fathi Hammad… Read more »
