İlknur Şebnem Öztemel-TDO-09.08.2017- According to Anadolu Agency, USA delivered 112 trucks full of modest military equipment to the Kurdish-controlled areas of northeastern Syria despite Turkey’s strong opposition.
USA sent 112 more trucks filled with highly-capable, modern military equipments to the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), forces located in Northern Syria.
The Anadolu news agency reported that journalists saw the convoy crossing into the territory of the Syrian Hasakah province on Monday night. Also, it is noted that the convoy contains trucks, fuel tankers and low-loaders transporting Humvee vehicles. Actually, it is not the first time that White House organized important military delivery to suspicious Kurdish militants.
Washington chosed PYD which has strong links with PKK, the organization that killed more than 40,000 innocent Turkish citizens, to work closely in spite of Ankara’s just opposition. On May 9, US President Donald Trump approved a plan to arm Kurdish groups fighting Deash.
What Americans do is not acceptance in a sixty-years old alliance. In that sense no one could criticize Turkey to develop a multidimensional diplomacy, improve political, economic and even military relations with other states.
