BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 P.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told the audience at an iftar dinner on Friday that nation’s armed forces will be clearing the remaining “terrorist groups” from Syria.

“Tens of thousands of guns, vehicles and equipment are provided free-of-cost to terror groups in northern Syria who we are fighting,” Erdogan said, taking a jab at the U.S.’ support of the Kurdish-led forces in Syria.

“We will soon clear terror-infested regions of Syria and give 4 million Syrians the chance to return home,” he added.

Erdogan has repeatedly vowed to eliminate these ‘terror’ groups east of the Euphrates; however, due to the prescience of U.S.-led Coalition forces in these areas, the Turkish leader has been unable to commit his forces to such an operation.

At the same time, Erdogan is also busy with the election fiasco in Istanbul, for which he cancelled the results because they were not favorable to his political party.

Erdogan’s decision to cancel the election results in Istanbul may create turmoil within his own country, which will greatly influence whether or not he can commit his military to such an operation.

If he wants to kill a terrorist, he should start by himself.

Erdogan provided tens of thousands of guns, vehicles and equipment free-of-cost to terror groups that created the million refugees in Turkey.

Erdogan also created all the terror infested regions along the Turkish border. The Kurds merely resisted against the genocide planned by Erdogan and his Jihadi mercenaries,

It will be interesting to see where the USA will station their patriot missiles. If in or near Rojava, they are also meent to be used against Turks.

PAC-3 has 20km range, PAC-3 MSE has 35km range.
You need the brand new PAAC-4 licensed from Israel to range 160km from a PAC-3 battery and these are far from being widespread.

That is correct. Daesh affiliated civilians and sleeper cells protest and rebel against SDF. SDF is rolling up the cells and takes in deash protesters. Soon, they will start clearing up Turk infested regions

Nope, not all Daesh but those opposed to Kurds / SDF Yahoos. Kurds have learned well to blame ISIS and use this convenient excuse to cover up their crimes against Syrians.
