Turkey to impose secure zones east of Euphrates in Syria - Erdogan

"Such steps, which damage the balance in the region and the peace between its peoples, must be stopped", Erdogan wrote in an op-ed piece for the Kommersant newspaper, dedicated to the agreement between Russian Federation and Turkey on Syria's Idlib.

An alliance of Turkey-allied rebel groups, the National Front for Liberation, has declared its "complete cooperation" with the Turkish effort, but has also ruled out disarming or yielding territory.

In his address to Turkish and Muslim communities in NY, organized by Turkish American National Steering Committee, Erdogan said Turkey's struggle will continue until the terror threat against it ends and it would eradicate terror gangs that aim at Syria's future.

Tahrir al-Sham is a coalition of armed groups dominated by the faction formerly known as the al-Nusra Front, which was an official wing of the al-Qaeda network until 2016.

The terror outfit also advised its members "in this decisive and unsafe phase".

Horas al-Din, Arabic for Guardians of Religion, called the deal to establish the zone that will be 15-20 kilometers (9-12 miles) deep, with troops from Russian Federation and NATO-member Turkey conducting coordinated patrols, a "great conspiracy".

It will be patrolled by Turkish and Russian forces. This might not be a problem, since Turkey is likely to ensure the demilitarized zone doesn't cost their allies too much.

It further said that a number of Tahrir al-Sham terrorists have entered the village of Deir Balout in Jandaris region in Afrin under the Turkish intelligence forces' monitoring. The details on the implementation of the agreement remain vague.

Turkey has said the "moderate opposition" would keep its weapons and remain in the areas it holds, and the "region will be cleared of radicals".

Close to three million people live in Idlib, around half of them Syrians displaced by the war from other parts of Syria, and the United Nations has warned that an offensive would cause a humanitarian catastrophe.
