ARK News: The commander-in-chief of the "Syrian Democratic Forces” (QSD) asserted that Russia and Iran stand behind the recent Turkish escalation against their militants in Syrian Kurdistan Syria.

"The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's latest threats against us came under pressure from Russia and Iran," said Mazloum Abdi in a speech at the North and East Syria Student Forum.

Abdi added: "Both Moscow and Tehran want to erupt a war on the border with Turkey."

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday that his country would activate its plans for the "safe area" of Syrian Kurdistan, if no result is reached within two weeks.

He pointed out that Turkey is no longer reassured statements about the "safe area", stressing that they want concrete actions on the ground.
