Hamsayeh.Net – The Syrian army has been put on highest state of alert after reports of a joint Turkish – American military drill taking place today (wednesday 1st of august) near the two countries’ borders
Unofficial reports point to a joint military drill by Turkey and US troops about two km from the Syrian border.
Recently, Ankara, has unnecessarily raised tensions with its southern neighbor after it said that Turkish army will retaliate against the PKK all the way inside the Syrian territory.
Syria is a strategic partner of both Iran and Russia and if reports of American involvement through Turkey is true it would seriously increase tension in that region.
Moscow and Tehran say they would allow a call for regime change in Syria based on what nonsense US and its allies claim to be the ground for President Basha Assad’s departure, who by the way happens to be extremely popular amongst Syrians.
