Abu Zeid: Turkey to continue to support Islamic radical groups against SDF

The writer and the politician Sarkis Abu Zeid said that Turkey will continue to support the Islamic and radical groups as a front and tool to confront Syrian Democratic Forces. 

Turkey has repeatedly threatened to launch attacks on northern and eastern Syria, which is run by Kurdish, Arab, Syriac, Chaldean and other peoples, and threatens to bury them in the land if they do not agree to form the "buffer zone", although this area was safe area before the threats of the Turkish threats and its sleeper cells of Daesh.

The Lebanese writer and politician Sarkis Abu Zeid talked about the US-Turkish relations after receiving the Russian missiles, "It is true that Turkey has received the Russian missiles, but it is still a member of NATO and has relations with the United States of America, but the relations are confusing and hesitant and beset by a series of problems and clashes in conjunction with the attempts of the parties to correct and arrange these issues."

Abu Zeid said that the United States does not want to lose Turkey as a key ally and a key member of NATO, while Turkey is trying to establish double lines between the United States and Russia to secure their interests and role, despite the difficulty, "he said Turkey" will either break away from America or try correct the issues."

He pointed to the decline of Erdogan's popularity within Turkey and the possibility of early elections and change the Turkish leadership, "perhaps America will have a role in this matter in order to pave the way for the arrival of an ally is more informed and more alliance and more distant from the Russian alliance."

Commenting on Turkey's threats to occupy northern and eastern Syria, the writer and Lebanese politician Sarkis Abu Zeid said: "Erdogan's threats to northern and eastern Syria may escalate in the coming days. The threats are contradictory messages and have a certain strategy. Turkey is in a state of hesitation and confusion because it has no decisive choices because of its hesitation between America and Syria on this subject on the Syrian territory, they may retreat from the region of Idlib, but perhaps will tighten in northern Syria in order to hit the presence of any special Kurdish forces in this region.

"Turkey feels that the Kurdish forces pose a danger, so it is hesitant and its options are not resolved. On the one hand, it is concerned about the presence of Kurdish forces in the region and on the other hand it will seek to satisfy Russia and Iran.

Sarkis said that the efforts of SDF cannot be denied, but that this does not mean that Turkey cannot launch an attack on these areas which it has defeated to regain control through "Islamic organizations of different names."

"Turkey remains an essential ally of radical Islamic organizations because it fears the presence of Kurdish forces in the region. Therefore, it prefers radical Islamic and terrorist movements against the existence of the Syrian Democratic Forces, which Turkey regards as a fundamental threat and considers it the main enemy to counter SDF. "

The writer and the Lebanese politician Sarkis Abu Zeid concluded by saying "it is expected in the coming period that there will be confrontation and battles because Turkey fears the role of SDF in this region, so the next phase will witness surprises and contradictions and resolve positions because the United States of America also has to give Turkey the green light in this region to regain its influence within Turkey and sacrifice its alliances in this region, or will it seek to entice Turkey to this impasse.
