Turkey vows to destroy US-backed Syrian forces

Syrian Democratic Forces fighters ride atop military vehicles as they celebrate victory in Raqqa Syria

The YPG makes up the core of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces militia which helped drive ISIL from territory in eastern Syria previous year.

While Turkey has backed rebels in the conflict, Russian Federation and Iran have provided military support to Syrian president Bashar Al Assad.

In same vein and on force envisaged to form Washington, Syrian government warned that it will end presence of United States in its territory, where national army will recover control of whole country, according to official news agency SANA.

"The countries with imperialist ambitions in the region are explicitly supporting terror groups... against Turkey", the premier said. "Our mission is to strangle it before it's even born".

Turkey is ready "at any moment" to start an operation in a besieged border area of Syria, said the president on Monday.

The Syrian Kurdish YPG spearheads an alliance of militias which has battled Islamic State in northern and eastern Syria under the banner of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Rojhat Roj, the YPG spokesman in Afrin, said Kurdish forces will "defend our gains, our territories" in the event of an attack. "Now, there aren't any guarantees", she said.

"The coalition and SDF forces were still engaging Islamic State pockets in Deir al-Zor province, " the US -led coalition said. It has about 2,000 troops on the ground in Syria.

Islamic State was effectively defeated a year ago, but Washington says its troops are prepared to stay to make sure the Islamist militant group can not return.

The Syrian army is determined to drive out the USA from any involvement in the country, state television reported on Monday. It considers the continued US presence a threat to its ambition to restore full control over the entire country.

Mr Erdogan on Saturday said Turkish forces in Syria would "vanquish" Kurdish militia that control the neighbouring region of Afrin, putting Turkey at odds with US-backed forces.

Turkey has previously criticized US support of the SDF due to the involvement of the YPG, which it views as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, which is considered a "terrorist" organization by Turkey, the USA and the European Union.

In his address at the opening of the Kazan Soda Electric Company, Erdogan also warned that the PKK will turn on its U.S. sponsors at the drop of a hat.

The U.S. declaration constitutes a flagrant aggression on the unity and sovereignty of Syria and a violation of the global law, the ministry said. "As soon as this 30,000 strong terrorist army comes under threat, they will be the first to turn their guns on the American soldiers".

Syria's Kurdish militants have emerged as one of the main winners of Syria's six-year war, capturing swaths of land in the country's north in which they are now trying to entrench their autonomy.

The YPG have occasionally skirmished with the Turkish military and Turkish-backed rebels throughout the Syrian civil war.

News of the coalition's plan to work with the SDF to train a new Syrian Border Security Force (BSF) was first reported on Saturday by The Defense Post, which quoted a spokesman as saying that 230 individuals were now participating in the "inaugural class". It said any Syrian who joined the force would be deemed "a traitor".

Assad's allies have also chimed in. If the United States wants to establish cooperation with these savage creatures, it is their business.

"Fundamentally, this means the breakup of a large territory along the border with Turkey and Iraq", Lavrov said.
