Erdogan: Turkey to achieve full victory over terrorists in northern Syria

Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 10

By Rufiz Hafizoglu – Trend:

Turkey will gain a full victory over terrorists in northern Syria, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.

“Presently, part of the Syrian territory is controlled by terrorists,” Erdogan added, Trend reports on Oct. 10 referring to the Turkish media.

"The countries accusing Turkey of military operations in northern Syria export terrorists to this country themselves," the president said. “The military operation entitled 'Source of Peace' is aimed at ensuring the security of Syria itself.”

Erdogan stressed that 109 terrorists were eliminated as part of the operation.

The president also criticized Saudi Arabia, which opposes the Operation “Source of Peace”.

"Saudi Arabia, before opposing Turkey, must report on military operations in Yemen," Erdogan said.

President Erdogan announced the beginning of a new military operation entitled 'Source of Peace' in Syria on Oct. 9. The president stressed that Turkey will completely destroy the hotbeds of terrorism in northern Syria.

On Oct. 7, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that in anticipation of the beginning of new military operations by the Turkish Armed Forces in northern Syria, the US servicemen began to leave the region.

On Oct. 1, Erdogan said that Turkey will have to create the safety zone in northern Syria alone.

Erdogan noted that the Syrian refugees who live in Turkey will be moved to the safety zone. “Turkey can no longer wait for someone to create the safety zone in northern Syria,” Erdogan said.

Erdogan noted that creating the safety zone won’t be easy, but the country’s armed forces will cope with this difficult task.

On Sept. 18, Erdogan said that the US was given two weeks to create a safety zone in northern Syria. Should the US not fulfill its promises and obligations, Ankara will take measures for creating a security zone on its own, Erdogan noted.

Erdogan also noted that Syrian refugees will be sent from Turkey to the safety zone to be created in northern Syria.

Turkey and the US came to an agreement on the creation of a safety zone in northern Syria on August 7.
