Turkey to not allow arming of PKK/PYD: Army chief

Turkey to not allow arming of PKK/PYD: Army chief

The PKK/PYD is the Syrian offshoot of the PKK, which is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US and EU.

About half would be SDF veterans, and another 15,000 would be new recruits.

The BSF will deploy to the northern border with Turkey, the southeastern border with Iraq and along the Euphrates River, which acts as a border between the US-backed SDF and Syrian regime and Russian forces.

The US-led coalition said that 230 people are training to be part of the border security force. "This will enable the Syrian people to establish effective local, representative governance and reclaim their land".

Turkey shouldn't delay the start of military operations against terrorists of Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) and the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) in the city of Afrin in the north of Syria, said Devlet Bahceli, leader of the Turkish opposition Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), Turkish media reported January 16. Erdogan said Monday that Turkish army units had fired dozens of shells toward Kurdish positions in and around Afrin the previous day. Washington disagrees and insists the YPG has been vital to the battle against IS.

"The preparations have been completed, the operation could start at any moment", he said.

"These individuals will bring much-needed experience and discipline to the force", the USA military command said in the email, adding that recruiting is underway to fill an additional 15,000 positions, for an eventual total of 30,000 members.

"What we are supposed to do is to drown this terror army before in comes into being", he said in an address in the capital, Ankara, calling the Kurdish fighters "back-stabbers" who will point their weapons to the United States in the future.

What do other countries say?

American officials said at the weekend that the new force was needed as the focus shifted from fighting IS extremists to border security in northern Syria .

The source warned that Damascus considered any Syrian fighting for militias sponsored by the U.S. to be "a traitor to their people and nation".

The proposed border force appears to signal how the Pentagon intends to support its Kurdish proxies in the longer term in Syria after scaling back its direct military assistance to the Kurds as major combat winds down. "This is a very serious issue that raises concerns that a path towards the partition of Syria has been taken", Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
