ArmInfo. The Turkish invasion of Syria opens up additional opportunities for cooperation between Israel and Armenia. A similar opinion was expressed by ArmInfo, an Israeli public figure, political scientist Avigdor Eskin.
"With Turkey's obviously unbridled aggressive outbursts, a strong Armenia is important to the whole region and the whole world as a stabilizing factor. It's time to realize this and help Armenia in its formation and strengthening," he emphasized. According to Eskin, after the start of the Turkish invasion of Syria, the casualties of hostilities are in the hundreds. What, the political scientist considers not surprising, calling to recall the tens of thousands of Kurds destroyed by Ankara since the beginning of the eighties. However, this time it is not just about the Turkish invasion of Syria, but also about the introduction of terrorist gangs of a radical Sunni orientation there, including militants of the notorious "Islamic State".
This course of events, according to the forecasts of a political scientist, threatens the results of the Russian military operation in Syria. And if Erdogan manages to let all the bloodthirsty fanatics who are now in Turkey into the neighboring country, the future of Syria will again be in jeopardy. An important lesson, in his opinion, is the next political failure of the Kurdish movement, and if two years ago they had a chance of independence, it was their own fragmentation that led them to a fiasco. The consequences of what are observed today.
"In Israel, the threat that present-day Turkey poses to the entire Middle East region is well understood. Erdogan's recent steps prove his inability to act within the framework of civilizational norms. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised assistance to Kurdish militias. Some Israeli ministers are calling for Israel to recognize an independent Kurdistan." - summed up Eskin.
On October 10, the Turkish army invaded the northern regions of neighboring Syria. Turkish President Recep Erdogan describes such actions as "directed against PKK and IG Operation "Source of the World." The objectives of the operation, he said, are to ensure the security of the southern border of Turkey from terrorists, to protect the territorial integrity of Syria and the return of the Syrians, "which Turkey cannot contain forever." Ankara's actions have criticized almost all neighboring countries, EU and USA. The latter explicitly threatened Turkey with sanctions. The Turkish Ministry of Defense reported that, according to the latest data, 174 terrorists were killed during the operation. In Syria, reported the deaths of eight civilians and 20 wounded.
