Ankara's military action caused alarm among world powers

Ankara's military action caused alarm among world powers

The abrupt USA withdrawal from the eight-year Syrian war, and the potential return of the Syrian army to the Kurdish-controlled northeast, are major victories for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his allies Russian Federation and Iran.

The YPG-led Syrian democratic front played a key role in Washington's fight against the Islamic state in Syria. "I trusted them with my life", said Giaconia, who now lives in Herndon, Virginia, after retiring from the Army with 20 years of service.

The United States announced on Sunday that it was beginning a deliberate withdrawal of around 1,000 troops from northern Syria, a process that U.S. officials told Reuters could take days, rather than weeks.

But since the release of a joint statement between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, critics from across the political spectrum have panned it as a capitulation to Turkey or a vague resolution that does not fully address the crisis now unfolding in northeastern Syria with the departure of USA troops.

"The administration and the president's decision has undermined every single one of" America's interests in Syria "and I think has done so in ways that we're going to regret for a long time", Sen.

Hundreds of demonstrators opposed to Turkey's military assault on Kurdish-held northeastern Syria descended on Westminster as almost 1,000 so-called Islamic State supporters reportedly escaped detention amid the chaos unleashed by the invasion.

Over the weekend, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that sanctions and arms embargoes won't stop Turkey's offensive in Syria. "President Erdogan's threats. are totally out of place". Those incidents came up often among Kurds who fought alongside a U.S. Army soldier who did several tours in the Middle East. "He didn't ask permission".

"They are here to occupy a country, to establish a new Ottoman empire", said Hudr Abdul Khader.

After defeating 100% of the ISIS Caliphate, I largely moved our troops out of Syria.

Reacting to the development, the ministry of external affairs said: "We are deeply concerned at the unilateral military offensive by Turkey in northeast Syria".

"Turkish border outposts south of Suruç came under Dochka and mortar fire from the hills located approximately 1,000 meters southwest of a US observation post".

Cavusoglu renewed warnings that his country will resume its offensive in northeastern Syria if Kurdish fighters don't vacate the region before the cease-fire is set to end Tuesday evening. But since the militants were driven out, Tanf has assumed a role as part of a US strategy to contain Iran's military buildup.

In a series of tweets, Trump said that it was a very smart move not to get involved in the Syria offensive as the Turks and Kurds have been fighting each other for years.

Abandoned by the USA - their chief ally in years of battles against IS that cost the lives of 11,000 of their fighters - the Kurds turned to Damascus. "Despite our opposition, they chose to make this incursion", Esper said. "Why are they not asking for a Declaration of War?", he added.

It followed a deal announced Sunday between Damascus and the Kurds that saw government troops raise the Syrian flag in the flashpoint northern city of Manbij on Tuesday after United States forces withdrew.

Two U.S. officials told Reuters on Sunday that a small number of U.S. troops have left an outpost in the town of Ain Issa in northern Syria because of concerns about a Turkish incursion that is pushing into Syria.

The scene encapsulated the Kurds' feelings of betrayal and added a new indignity to a US withdrawal that has been rushed and saw several close brushes with Turkish-backed forces.

Those fears were highlighted on Sunday, when the Kurdish-led administration in northern Syria said 785 foreigners affiliated with Islamic State managed to escape a camp where they were being held following Turkish shelling. Meanwhile, the United States said it was pulling its troops out of Syria altogether.
