Turkey dismisses USA threats, amasses troops on Syrian border

Turkey dismisses USA threats, amasses troops on Syrian border”

In the face of significant pushback, the president said: "if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off-limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the economy of Turkey".

"I held off this fight for nearly 3 years, but it is time for us to get out of these ridiculous Endless Wars, many of them tribal, and bring our soldiers home", he wrote.

Zarif's tweeted his condemnation of the US role in Syria nearly immediately after news of a possible USA troop withdrawal came out. Turkey has demanded USA -allied Syrian Kurds leave the area.

Trump's statements have reverberated on all sides of the divide in Syria and the Mideast.

In a show of hands, legislators approved the motion on Tuesday as Turkey says it is ready to carry out a new incursion into Syria to clear a border area from US -backed Syrian Kurdish fighters that it considers to be terrorists. Turkey, however, sees the Kurds as terrorists and a border threat. At least two convoys of buses carrying Turkish commandos headed to the border Tuesday, state-run Anadolu Agency reported.

Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad stressed that Damascus "will defend all Syrian territory, and will not accept any occupation of its land", he told Al-Watan newspaper. His comments were the first Syrian reaction since Trump's announcement on Sunday.

Iran expressed to Turkey on Monday its opposition to an incursion into northern Syria.

Trump's statement has infuriated the Kurds, who are bracing for an imminent Turkish attack. "As the President has stated, Turkey would be responsible, along with European nations and others, for thousands of ISIS fighters who had been captured and defeated in the campaign lead by the United States", the department added.

President Bashar Assad's government abandoned the predominantly Kurdish area in northern Syria at the height of Syria's civil war to focus on more key areas where the military was being challenged by the rebels.

"Zarif, opposed military action and emphasized respect for Syria's territorial integrity and national sovereignty and the need to fight terrorism and bring stability and security to Syria", state broadcaster IRIB said, about the phone call with Mevlut Cavusoglu.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called on all parties in northeastern Syria "to exercise maximum restraint", spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.

Republican lawmakers are calling on the president to change course on a decision that allows Turkish forces to move into the area, abandoning Kurdish fighters who fought alongside the United States in the fight to defeat the Islamic State. The statement made no mention of US efforts to forestall the invasion, leading many to conclude that Trump was, in effect, turning a blind eye to a slaughter of Kurds.

"We have more work to do to keep ISIS from coming back & make our accomplishments permanent". It has already launched two major incursions into northern Syria over the past years.
