Turkish PM: Ankara to continue striking Syrian Kurds
Turkey PM: Ankara Fired at Kurds in Response to Proximity to Azaz
Turkey strikes on the positions of the military wing of the party of the Syrian Kurds “Democratic Union” (PYD) in Syria were inflicted as a response, reports Reuters with reference to the Prime Minister of Turkey Ahmet Davutoglu.
Davutoglu also said that the Kurds must leave the area around the city of Azaz in the North of Syria, reports RIA “Novosti”.
Turkish artillery on Saturday night opened fire on the Menagh Airfield in the North Syrian province of Aleppo, liberated Kurdish military.
Earlier on Saturday, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said that the Turkish armed forces, if necessary, can conduct a military operation against militants of the party of the Syrian Kurds “Democratic Union”.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, on 9th February, said that the US must make a choice between Turkey and the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PDS) associated with the banned in the country Kurdistan workers party (PKK).
On Sunday, with a similar statement was made by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. He also urged the United States to make a choice between cooperation with the Turkish authorities or the cooperation with the Kurds. In particular, Erdogan expressed his indignation over the visit of the envoy of the President of the United States to the Kurdish militias in the Syrian city of Kobani.
Later the Wall Street Journal reported that, according to Washington, Turkey’s position regarding the Kurds is one of the main obstacles to a political settlement in Syria and hinders the fight against the terrorist group “Islamic State”.
VZ.ru previously analyzed the ultimatum of Erdogan and the reaction of the United States.
Recall that on the 26th January, the head of the Syrian Kurdish party “Democratic Union”, Saleh Muslim, said that he has not received an invitation for talks to resolve the Syrian crisis in Geneva. Thus, according to the office of the special UN envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, new invitations for the second round are not planned.
The Foreign Minister of Turkey, Mevlut Cavusoglu, in January, said that Ankara will boycott the peace talks, if they will invite representatives of the “Democratic Union”.

A prominent Syrian Kurd analyst warned Turkey against targeting the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Syria, saying it will invoke Chapter 7 of the UN Charter against Ankara.
“(Turkish President Recep Tayyip) Erdogan will lead Turkey to the brink of collapse by violating the ceasefire agreement with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and bombing the positions of those Kurds who are fighting the terrorist groups in Northern Aleppo,” Jamal Mahmoud told FNA on Monday.
Expressing surprise that Turkey is speaking of campaign against terror after years of supporting the same terror groups and fomenting internal conflicts in Syria, Mahmoud said if Ankara attacks the Syrian Army and the YPG positions in Northern Syria, it will present Turkey as a threat to peace under Chapter 7 of the UN Charter.
Chapter 7 sets out the UN Security Council’s powers to maintain peace. It allows the Council to “determine the existence of any threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression” and to take military and non-military action to “restore international peace and security”.
Mahmoud’s remarks came after Saudi Arabia and Turkey raised the possibility for sending ground forces to Syria.
The idea of Riyadh’s possible participation in ground operations in Syria was first raised on February 4 by Ahmed Asiri, a spokesman for the Saudi Defense Ministry.
Turkey and Saudi Arabia are also both part of an effort to create an alleged “Islam Army,” ostensibly aimed at combating terrorism in the region and consisting of 34 Sunni Islam nations.
Almost the entire range of extremist and terrorist groups are supported by Saudi Arabia and Turkey, with their key commanders and leaders being Saudi nationals. ISIL, Al-Nusra and other extremist groups pursue the same line of ideology exercised and promoted by Saudi Arabia, Wahhabism. Hundreds of Saudi clerics are among the ranks of ISIL and Al-Nusra to mentor the militants.
Wahhabism is now the only source of the textbooks taught at schools in the self-declared capital of the ISIL terrorist group, Raqqa, in Northeastern Syria resembling the texts and lessons taught to schoolgoers in Saudi Arabia. The Wahhabi ideology, an extremist version of Sunni Islam that is promoted almost only in Saudi Arabia, sees all other faiths – from other interpretations of Sunni Islam to Shiism, Christianity and Judaism – as blasphemy, meaning that their followers should be decapitated as nonbelievers.
Early in February, the Saudi Defense Ministry said it stood ready to deploy ground troops to Syria to allegedly aid the US-led anti-ISIL, also known as Daesh, coalition.
Riyadh has been a member of the US-led coalition that has been launching airstrikes against Daesh in Syria since September 2014, without the permission of Damascus or the United Nations. In December 2015, Saudi Arabia started its own Muslim 34-nation coalition to allegedly fight Islamic extremism.
Daesh or ISIL/ISIS is a Wahhabi group mentored by Saudi Arabia and has been blacklisted as a terrorist group everywhere in the world, including the United States and Russia, but Saudi Arabia.
Damascus, Tehran and Moscow have issued stern warnings to Riyadh, stressing that the Saudi intruders, who in fact intend to rescue the terrorists that are sustaining heavy defeats these days, will be crushed in Syria.
Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem warned that any ground operation in Syria without Damascus’ approval is an “act of aggression”, warning that the Saudi aggressors “would go back home in coffins”.
In Tehran, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said Saudi Arabia doesn’t have the guts to send its armed forces to Syria.
“They claim they will send troops (to Syria) but I don’t think they will dare do so. They have a classic army and history tells us such armies stand no chance in fighting irregular resistance forces,” Jafari said.
“This will be like a coup de grâce for them. Apparently, they see no other way but this, and if this is the case, then their fate is sealed,” he added.
Jafari, said this is just cheap talks, but Iran welcomes the Saudi decision if they decide to walk on this path.
