Why Turkey is invading Syria 4.5

… 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.

Türkler, kardeşlerimiz, biz Kazaklar, Kırgızlar, Özbekler,
Türkmenler, sıradan insanlar tüm kalbimizle endişe duyuyoruz. Rusya ve Çin'e
ihtiyacımız yok; Batı ve ABD sana ihanet etti. Kimsenin bize ihtiyacı yok.
Birbirimize ihtiyacımız var, ortak atalarımız, ortak köklerimiz var. Bazı
yurttaşlarımızın Suriye'de savaşıyor olmaları, liderliğimizden ve çıkarlarımıza
aykırı politikalarından memnun olmadıklarını göstermektedir. Birleşmemizin
yollarını aramalıyız. Birlikte daha güçlü olacağız ve dünyanın bizimle hesaplaşmasını
