Erdogan's Ottoman dreams are doomed to failure

 From the very beginning of the crisis in Syria, the Turkish colonialist voracity has been crystal clear. Erdogan's regime has been trying to revive the Ottoman Sultanate. He has ambitions to occupy other people’s land to reinvigorate and recreate the Ottoman Empire.

 Immediately after the beginning of the crisis in Syria, former Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu slipped into Syria secretly to visit the tomb of Suleiman Shah, the grandfather of the founder of the Ottoman empire near Syria’s border with Turkey. The unauthorized visit, which happened without the Syrian government’s permission, is a blatant aggression against a sovereign country which is a UN member state and is a grave violation of international laws and UN Charter.

However this visit was not the first indication of the Turkish dream to restore the past colonialist history of the Ottomans. It was preceded by Turkish unlimited support for the terrorist organizations operating in Syria. The most recent episode of Turkish backing for terrorists was carried out three days ago when Turkish vehicles and trucks loaded with ammunition, weapons and material equipment passed through the Syrian-Turkish borders and reached Saraqeb City on their way to Khan Sheikhoun town to help the conquered terrorists of “Jabhat al-Nusra”, which is on the list of the UN Security Council as a terrorist organization.

The liberation of Khan Sheikhoun constitutes a direct military setback for the Turkish occupation forces as it is the terrorists' main position in the south of Idleb. This act affirms once again the continued unlimited financial and logistic support provided by the Turkish regime to terrorist groups.

This aggressive behavior and outrageous breach of the international law and UN charter by the Turkish regime will not in any way affect the strong determination of the Syrian Arab Army to continue to uproot the remnants of terrorists in Khan Sheikhoun and other areas till cleansing every inch of the Syrian land from terrorism.

The Turkish colonialist gluttony was also evident through the agreement which was announced by the US and Turkish occupations on establishing the so-called “safe zone".

The provocative agreement constitutes a blatant aggression against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic and a flagrant violation of the principles of the international law and the UN Charter.

This agreement has very clearly showed the US-Turkish partnership in the aggression against Syria which serves the interest of the Israeli occupation entity and the Turkish expansionist ambitions.

The Syrian people and their heroic army who have sacrificed a lot for defending Syria in the face of the Takfiri terrorist groups and their backers, are more determined to sacrifice everything to preserve the safety and territorial integrity of their homeland.

Arabs should be aware of the dangers of the expansionist ambitions of the Turkish regime which is spreading death and chaos in different parts of the Arab world from Syria to Libya and the Sudan and it will not stop till it satisfies its illusions on reviving the Ottoman Sultanate.

The international community and the UN should condemn the US-Turkish flagrant aggression which constitutes a dangerous escalation and poses a threat to peace and security in the region and the world and hinders all positive efforts for finding a solution to the crisis in Syria.

Syrian people will not allow to change the geographic or demographic status of their land or to draw alternative maps, to establish the so-called safe zones or any other sinister schemes.
