President Assad Slams Turkey Incursion as Robbery, Aggression

President Assad Slams Turkey Incursion as Robbery, Aggression

Alwaght- Syrian President Bashar al-Assad condemned Turkish Army's incursion into his country's northern areas as "aggression" and "robbery," saying “When we face an aggression or robbery, we should stand by each other".

Assad made the remarks in a meeting with Syrian army personnel on the frontlines of al-Habit town, on Idlib’s southern edges, on Tuesday.

"… but some Syrians haven’t done that, particularly over the first years of the war… We told them not to bet on the abroad, but on the army, the people and the homeland,” President Assad said, referring to the Kurds who had put their trust in the US and relied on its support.

The Syrian president further said that Syria's first measure in the face of the Turkish offensive was “to communicate with different political and military forces on the ground, and we said that we are ready to support any group that would resist, and it isn’t a political decision, but a constitutional and national duty, and if we don’t do that, we don’t deserve the homeland.”

Assad described the defeating of the Takfiri terrorists holed up in Idlib as the key to ending the eight-year war gripping the country as he visited troops deployed to the frontline against the terrorists in the northwestern province.

 “We have always said and we still say that Idlib battle is basic for ending chaos and terrorism in all the Syrian areas,” he said during his first visit to the embattled region since 2011.

Idlib remains the only large area in the hands of anti-Damascus militants after the Syrian military — backed by Iran and Russia — managed to undo militant gains across the country and bring back almost all of Syrian soil under government control.

In January, the UN estimated that there were 20,000 terrorists in Idlib associated with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, a coalition of al-Qaeda-inspired terror outfits.

Over the past few days, Syrian troops have been deployed to parts of the country’s north to support the Kurds in the face of a Turkish military offensive, which was launched on October 9 after the US abruptly abandoned its longtime Kurdish allies and withdrew its forces from Syria’s north.
