This is scary.  Military campaign East of Euphrates could led to serious complications in Turkey’s relations with the West.


Turkey’s impending installation of the first Russian S-400 system near the Syrian border and a military build-up in the southeast of the country signal Ankara’s intent to launch a military operation in its neighbour shortly, Bülent Aydemir wrote for the Habertürk news website.


According to Aydemir, there are other signs that indicate Turkey has been preparing for a military assault. The military has suspended all reassignments and holidays of Turkish troops deployed in east and southeast Turkey for three months. It has also been transferring armoured vehicles to the border region, Aydemir said, adding that Turkish ground troops are expected to enter Syria from the Akçakale border town.
