Why Turkey is invading Syria – Türkiye neden Suriye’yi işgal ediyor

… and how it’s getting what it wanted.

On Oct. 9, 2019, Turkey launched an attack in northeastern Syria. Turkey made the move shortly after the US announced it would remove some of its troops from the region.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had his eyes on the region for years. Turkey, he argued, needed a “safe zone” to serve as a buffer against the Syrian War happening just across the border. Yet back home in Turkey, there were other factors at play that accelerated his calls for an invasion that involved Erdoğan’s own political survival.

The move has recalibrated alliances in the Syrian War and added new uncertainty on the future of the region.

  1. Hi everyone! We wanted to share some of our sources for critical points in the video:

    For figures on Syrian refugees in neighboring countries, we used official numbers provided by the United Nations Commissioner for Refugees. You can find that information here: https://data2.unhcr.org/en/situations/syria

    UNCHR has tracked this official count since the start of Syria’s civil war and there are indeed still many that are unaccounted for.

  2. I don't blame Turkey for wanting a safe zone

    Trump has a very good point that it's not Americas job to protect the Kurds for the rest of their lives

  3. the most appropriate to fix Syria is Russia, they are the most influential country over Syria and a member of the United Nation Security Council.

  4. Terrorists burning tires to serve international media. They trying to effect public opinion. They want you to think Turkey burning cities. But there is no such a thing. We are living with kurds in Turkey. We are living in peace with kurds. I have a lot of kurdish friends personally. We are not enemies with kurds. We are enemies with just terrorists which bombing cities and killing our citizens. And we are not invading syria. Its just temporary operation to serve national security and securing syrian people for live in peace without fear of pkk-ypg. And we will never harm local people. Terrorists burning hospitals, releases isis terrorists. Turkey sends doctors, medical helps to compansate that. World misunderstood us.

  5. STOP SAYING KURDS! SHAME ON YOU !!!1 THEY ARE PKK FORCES YPG= SRYIAN BRACH OF THE PKK !!! AND PKK IS AN TERRORIST GROUP BY UE USA AND TURKEY. KILLED MORE THAN 40 000 CIVILLIAN PEOPLE BABIES AND WOMAN AND CHILDRENS !!! MORE THAN 20 000 000 KURDS LIVES IN TURKEY IN PEACE AND THEY WILL NOT BE YOUR PROXY ARMY!! AND YES USA SUPPORTING TERRORISM VERY CLEARLY THIS TIME I HOPE YOU WILL PAY FOR IT ONE DAY IF THERE IS A JUSTICE

  6. every year born in Turkey 400.000 syrian child. Think about it where they came the 3.6 million syrian refugees? Turkey just want to send refugees their home

  7. How is it that SDF leaving let 100s of ISIS followers easily escape jails? You're telling me SDF has no idea what a pad lock is? Did they leave the keys lying around? The "narrative" has more holes than swiss cheese.

  8. You have forgotten to tell the numbers of Turkish babies, teachers and all civilians that PKK killed. You are making a huge mistake by considering PKK as heroes or innocents.

  9. Last part is fully wrong , I’m Turkish and you guys are not showing the right things . You have to make an update video for that by using Turkish news not the English new . As everyone know English news are completely different than the truths .

  10. You should make videos " why American invade all Muslim country? "
    "why Israel invade syria yeamen and iraq ".
    It's not so called SAVE ZONE . It's save zone for syrian refugees that make mossad and world biggest terrorist America.

  11. Is Turkey's march causes chaos and migration in Syria or it is already in chaos? Why SDF's suppression among the Arabs and Turkmens and force to change demographic structure of Northern Syria not mentioned? This video can be more analytical and OBJECTİVE.
