Kurdish Popular Committees: Syria Will Become a Graveyard for Any Invader… the Threats of the Ottoman Erdogan are Irresponsible

Kurdish popular committees in Syria said that Syrian lands will become a graveyard for any invader that considers attacking Syria, and that the entire Syrian people with all its components will stand in the face of such an aggression no matter the price.

In a statement issued on Friday, the committees said that the threats issued by the Ottoman Recep Tayyip Erdogan – who dreams of spreading Ottoman influence across the region with the aid of the Arab Gulf, Israel and the US – are irresponsible, and that he will be defeated like all his ancestors before him who committed massacres against Syrians.

The committees called upon rational and honest Turks to put a stop to Erdogan who has become a danger to Turkey’s security and neighboring countries and exposed himself as a pawn in the hand of Israel who carries out US-western colonialist agendas.

The statement concluded by pointing out that the repercussions of any aggression will spread to the entire region, including Al Saud and Al Thani who will not be protected by the colonialist military bases in their countries.

Turkey Set up Secret Base with Qatar and Saudi Arabia to Lead Aid to Armed Groups in Syria

Gulf sources reveled that Turkey has set up a secret base in cooperation with Saudi Arabia and Qatar “to direct vital military and communications aid” to the armed terrorist groups in Syria from Adana city near the border.

A Doha-based source told Reuters that the Turks are militarily running the secret base which was called ‘nerve center’. “It’s the Turks who are militarily controlling it. Turkey is the main co-ordinator/facilitator. Think of a triangle, with Turkey at the top and Saudi Arabia and Qatar at the bottom.”

The source said that the U.S. intelligence are involved in this “through middlemen. Middlemen are controlling access to weapons and routes.”

The source added that the centre in the city of Adana, which is located in southern Turkey about 100 km (60 miles) from the Syrian border, was set up after Saudi Deputy Foreign Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Abdullah al-Saud visited Turkey and requested it.

“The Turks liked the idea of having the base in Adana so that they could supervise its operations,” the source was cited as saying.

It identified three governments that are supplying weapons: Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

“The Turks have been desperate to improve their weak surveillance, and have been begging Washington for drones and surveillance,” the source added, noting that the pleas seemed to have failed, “so they have hired some private guys come do the job.”

Although Turkey has denied involvement in the terrorist bombing which targeted the National Security building in Damascus, Reuters said, two former senior U.S. security officials said that “Turkey has been playing an increasing role in sheltering and training Syrian rebels who have crossed into its territory,” and has stepped up support for the armed groups after the Syrian air defenses shot down a Turkish plane which had made several passes over border areas in violation of the Syrian airspace.

Sources in Doha told Reuters that Qatar is playing a main role in running the operations of the Adana base as Qatari officials are providing training and supplies to the armed groups in Syria.

The Qataris mobilized their special forces team two weeks ago. Their remit is to train and help logistically,” said a Doha-based source, adding that Qatar’s military intelligence directorate, Foreign Ministry and State Security Bureau are involved.

At a press conference in Sochi, Lavrov said that the UN Human Rights Council has offered evidence confirming that the armed groups and the opposition are practicing execution and torture, adding that therefore “pressure must be put on everyone.”

“Unfortunately, our Western partners prefer to do something a bit different and essentially, along with some countries neighboring Syria, encourage, support and direct the armed fight against the regime,” he said.

“The price of all this is still more blood,” he added.

Lavrov stressed that all sides have to implement the agreements reached by the Action Group on Syria,which held its meeting in Geneva last June, underscoring the necessity of implementing these agreements to halt violence immediately.

The National Initiative of Syrian Kurds strongly denounces the statements of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his threats of infiltrating the borders in northern Syria under the pretext of pursuing Kurdish activists affiliated with the Kurdistan Labor Party.

In a statement issued on Friday, the Initiative warned the Turkish government of any tampering with Syrian sovereignty or any military or security breach of border areas.

The statement affirmed that Turkey has been blatantly aggressive against Syria’s people, state and leadership since the beginning of the crisis in Syria, attempting to recreate the Benghazi model and adopting it in some border areas under the pretext of creating safe havens, buffer areas and humanitarian passages,

The Initiative stressed that Turkey has been providing all forms of logistic support – including weapons, headquarters and equipment – to the armed terrorist group and the external non-patriotic opposition, all under the instructions of Israel, the US and the west, adding that Turkey was also involved in sabotage and the destabilization of security and stability in Syria alongside Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
