Russia makes it clear to Erdogan that a new war in Syria is not worth starting

Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the need to create a 30 km wide buffer zone on the Turkish-Syrian border, for which a special military operation will be carried out. Such plans of Turkey create a zone of instability in the northern part of Syria and provoke the development of an armed conflict.

In order to prevent such a development of events, Russia is building up its military grouping in the province of Hasek. So, last week, additional forces of the Aerospace Forces arrived at the airfields of Qamishli and Madras. On July 7, another flight of Su-34 fighter-bombers, as well as several Ka-52 and Mi-24 attack helicopters, were transferred to Kamyshly. Thus, Moscow makes it clear to Ankara that it is not worth starting a new war in the SAR.

In addition, according to the Hurriyet newspaper, Russia did not approve the operation of Turkish troops in the Ain Issa region in the north of the Arab Republic, where the M4 highway is located, connecting the cities of Hasaka, Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor in the east and Aleppo in the north of the country.

Along with this, Washington also expressed its dissatisfaction with the Turkish initiative. US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken noted that the United States opposes Ankara's military plans. In response to this, the official representative of the Turkish President, Ibrahim Kalin, stressed that Turkey does not need the approval of its actions from other states.

Earlier, the Russian military reported a new round of terrorist activity in the Idlib de-escalation zone after Turkey announced the imminent start of a military operation.

    The Turks are also increasingly liking the concept of a "special demilitarization operation." Partners will achieve sooner or later.

    The Kurds, with the support of the United States, have dug in on the most fertile lands of Syria. I understand Kurds. They want to have their own state. But Russia offered them a federation within Syria, but they preferred to listen to the United States. Therefore, we must seize the moment and restore Syrian sovereignty over most of the territory beyond the Euphrates, with the help of Turkey. For one thing, avenge Wagner and expel the United States from Syria.
    Turkey will not give up Idlib, Assad does not have the strength to liberate the territory beyond the Euphrates, and the United States controls it there. How to liberate the entire territory of Syria? With the help of Turkey, it is necessary to return most of the territory.
