Turkey deployed 10 tanks to Syrian border

Pres. Rouhani Iranian gov't nation to always stand by Syrian nation

Speaking at the press conference on Monday, the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sergey Lavrov, said that the USA initiative to work with the SDF to train a new Syrian Border Security Force (BSF) implies the "separation of large territories of the Syrian Arab Republic".

The prime minister noted that Turkey will do everything necessary to ensure security of its territory and Ankara has every right to do so.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says it is an extension of the banned Kurdistan Workers' Party, which has fought for Kurdish autonomy in Turkey for three decades.

"Tomorrow (or) the day after (or) within a short period, we will get rid of terror nests one-by-one in Syria starting with Afrin and Manbij" in northern Syria, he was quoted as saying by Agence France-Presse. He said the actions of the United States don't correspond to the spirit of ally relations with Turkey.

"It was emphasised that we are ready, immediately and decisively, to take the steps needed to eliminate the threats... coming from the west of Syria", it added.

This comes as a retaliation to the Peoples' Protection Units (YPG) firing a large number of missiles targeting settlements in the Azaz region bordering Turkey and Syria, which is controlled by the Turkish-backed opposition Free Syrian Army, media reports said.

Hulsi Akar, Turkish Chief of the General Staff, told a meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation defense chiefs in Brussels today, that Turkey will not allow the arming of the Kurdish PYD/YPG in Syria, as Turkey regards the PYD/YPG as an extension of the terrorist PKK inside Turkey.

The United States over the weekend announced plans to create a 30,000-strong internal security and border security force, half of which would be SDF fighters.

The YPG is a major bone of contention in ties between Turkey and the United States, which considers it a key ally in fighting IS.

"The plot that the Americans recently have in mind for Syria is against worldwide regulations and a conspiracy (against) the territorial integrity and the security of Syria and the region", Rouhani said, according to a statement released by his office.

On Sunday the USA -led coalition in Syria controversially announced it was working with the SDF - a group dominated by the terrorist PYD/PKK - to set up and train a Syrian border protection force.

"We acknowledge Turkey's concerns regarding these [Border] Security Forces being trained".

The state of emergency, declared five days after the July 15, 2016 coup, has allowed a massive government crackdown aimed at suspected supporters of US -based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, whom Turkey says was behind the coup attempt.

French citizens are among the biggest contingent of overseas fighters who have joined IS, with around 1,000 nationals estimated by counter-terror officials to have traveled to Iraq and Syria.

"Operating under recognized worldwide authorities, the USA military will continue to support local partner forces in Syria to stabilize liberated territory", said Marine Maj.

"As we have seen from Iran s proxy wars and public announcements, Iran seeks dominance in the Middle East and the destruction of our ally Israel", he said.
