United States discloses PKK/PYD-led army plan in Syria

Syrian war will drag into next decade warns Kurdish leader

Turkey has long protested USA support for the PKK/PYD, the Syrian offshoot of the PKK terrorist organisation, and its military wing PYG, while Washington sees it as a "reliable ally" in its fight against Daesh in Syria.

"The slightest disturbance on the border would be the signal for us to take a step", Mr Erdogan said in a televised speech.

The coalition had issued a written statement to some media outlets earlier on Sunday, wherein it said that the coalition was working with the SDF to set up and train a Syria Border Protection Force.

Some 400 so-called "border guards" trained by the USA through the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency formed a so-called "The North Army", said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to security concerns.

Turkey sees YPG as the offshoot of outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).

On Saturday, Turkish security forces hit several PKK/PYD targets in the Afrin district of Syria's Aleppo province to prevent a "terror corridor" from forming along Turkey's borders. "More Arabs will serve in the areas along the Euphrates River Valley and along the border with Iraq to the south".

Speaking to Tasnim, Abdul-Qader Azouz, who is also a professor of politics, said the clashes between the Syrian army and the Al-Nusra Front terrorist group in southern Idlib are, undoubtedly, within the framework of worldwide agreements.

Turkey has long protested US support for the PKK/PYD while Washington sees it as a "reliable ally" in its fight against Daesh in Syria.

The President added that Turkey will act alone to protect its security against YPG militants even if the United States continues its partnership with the group. "It's absolutely not possible to accept this", Kalin said and repeated that Turkey would defend itself.

The US has about 2,000 troops in Syria fighting ISIL, and has said it is prepared to stay in the country until it is certain of three things: that the extremist group has been defeated, that stabilisation efforts can be sustained, and that there is meaningful progress in UN-led peace talks on ending the conflict.

Since the PKK launched its terror campaign in 1984, an estimated 40,000 people have been killed in Turkey in related violence.
