Zahra'a Al-Derzi Press TV, Damascus Syria has condemned as hostile intentions the planned Turkish military invasions in the country’s northeast, saying it will thwart any aggression by all legitimate means.
In a statement, Syrian Foreign Ministry accused the Turkish government of exerting expansionist ambitions.
The ministry also blamed some Kurdish groups for the current situation on the border, but said Ankara would still be ready to embrace them into the fold.
Meanwhile, Syrians on the streets say they are against any operation by Turkish on their soil and view it as a violation of their territorial integrity.
Kurdish forces in Syria have also reacted to the planned Turkish move, saying they reserve the right to defend themselves until their last breath.
Meanwhile, the Turkish President has told his Russian counterpart that the offensive in northern Syria will help bring peace and stability and ease the path to political solution.
The Turkish Foreign Ministry says Ankara will inform all relevant countries, including the Syrian government about the operation.
Damascus and the Syrian Kurds have already signaled readiness to enter talks following the US pullout.
Meanwhile, the United Nations has expressed concern about the repercussions of any military confrontation in northeastern Syria.
Meanwhile Iran says Turkey is right to be worried about security along its southern border but it must be more careful and patient, and rethink its approach toward Syria.
Syria says the Turkish operation is a threat to its territorial integrity and dignity.
Damascus says the only way to prevent Ankara’s planned aggression is to hand the self-administered areas to Syrian Government and Syrian Army.
This could be an ample opportunity for the Syrian Kurds to seize.
