The protesters submitted a petition to the al-Qaeda official demanding a halt to the military operation planned by Turkey east of the Euphrates in Syria.

The Turkish army sent on Saturday, new military reinforcements to its troops stationed on the border with Syria, amid the threats of Ankara to launch a military operation.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday his country would carry out an air and ground operation east of the Euphrates in Syria “to establish peace there,” saying it “is close enough to say it will happen today or tomorrow.”

In the same context, Turkey continues to resent the progress of negotiations with the United States on the establishment of a “safe zone”, which would alleviate Ankara’s security concerns in the face of Kurdish militants stationed in these territories.
