On Monday morning, Arab newspapers touched upon the situation of the Syrian regions occupied by Turkey, as well as Turkish projects in North Africa, and the American-Chinese tension against the background of the emerging coronavirus (Covid 19).
Al-Ain: Northern Syria ... between occupation and humiliation
The Arab newspapers published this morning on the Syrian issue dealt with several topics, the most prominent of which was the situation in the north of the country. In this, the writer Abd al-Jalil al-Saeed said in an article published by Al-Ain newspaper: "Observers of the Syrian scene agree on the fact that it is highly political complicated, through which it is difficult to know more about the fate of matters inside a war-torn Arab country and its citizens have exhausted humanitarian and economic crises that are long explained due to the lack and absence of a unified vision to manage the Syrian conflict by international players such as Russia and America, and regional players such as Turkey and Iran.
The scene itself takes on bad dimensions when we discuss the issue of the Syrian north and the east of the Euphrates River, where Turkey occupied years ago and is still large areas of the provinces of Lattakia, Idlib, Aleppo, al-Raqqa and the Syrian al-Hasakah, and Erdogan's intelligence units were deployed there immediately within what became known as the areas of the "Euphrates Shield, olive branch and springs" Peace, they are all bright names for the hateful Turkish occupation there.
And because the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood was presented to the Turkish state by them as opponents of the Damascus government since the start of the Syrian crisis, Erdogan's plans to annex important parts of the Syrian land, so the intelligence services trained their members in camps inside Turkey and recruited them when needed in northern Syria, As part of an organized process, which requires them to make them new Ottoman Janus militia, they come to Ankara and get their monthly salaries from the Qatari treasury.
And live in northern Syria millions of Syrian citizens fleeing the hell of war in their country to areas that the Erdogan government has said on more than one international occasion that it is working to make it a safe area, but the reality is: The Turkish occupation relies on extremist people with ISIS and al Qaeda tendencies to supervise the life diaries in all of these towns, villages and cities that are tolerated by the Turkish "gendarmerie".
From the loaf of the bread to the details of internal trade passing through the issue of border crossings and not the end of the supply of Turkish goods to these areas, the Syrians pay dearly prices for their livelihoods to their children for the pockets of influential Erdogan men or the so-called "Hajji" group, a retired Turkish general "Abu Furqan" who rules The Syrian north in the name of the occupation and in various forms of direct and indirect humiliation for the afflicted.
And spread in the Syrian north of the Turkish secret prisons in which the worst forms of torture are practiced against those who raise their voices calling for the necessity of the departure of the Turkish occupier from his land, or who expresses his personal opinion in private or public councils, criticizing mercenary trips to Libya, and recruiting adolescents to be a fuel for Erdogan's wars that It does not end, nor does it stop at the limits of exploiting the poverty of these simple people and their horrific ignorance of what they will do when they board Turkish planes that will take them to the inevitable death.
Al-Arab: Settling terrorism in Libya, Turkey's plan to compensate Sudan's loss
Regarding Turkish interference in the Libyan issue, Al-Arab newspaper said, "The intensification of the Turkish strikes in Libya and the recruiting of thousands of extremists into it to control large and vital areas of many of the regional messages carry, because Ankara will not forget the blow it received in Egypt with the fall of the Brotherhood regime seven years ago, and what followed from repercussions broke the back of the organization and the movements revolving in its orbit.
Ankara did not feel the seriousness of the strong blow it received in Egypt because it was maintaining Sudan as a major focal point for extremist groups revolving in its orbit, and from its lands it managed and directed those east, west, north and south.
The fall of President Omar al-Bashir’s regime a year ago came to represent a second, more painful blow. With him, the dreams of Ottoman Turkey in Sudan began to decline. And what Bashir, the ruling National Congress Party and the Islamist movement have turned into a hotbed for attracting militants and terrorists from all corners of the earth, caring, cuddling, training and directing, to the areas where they want to practice organized violence.
The new authority in Khartoum sent direct signals to Ankara, all of which implied a desire to dismantle previous engagements and to break down the agreements that nearly led to control of Suakin Island in the Red Sea, Turkey wanted to turn it into a strategic station that relies on it to achieve its goals in the region, and from that it departs to adapt Sudan with a barrage of military and economic treaties, but the features of the collapse appeared on them early.
If the issue of grabbing Suakin is decisive in terms of expelling the Turkish presence from it, the indications regarding the situation of militant groups in Sudan are still vague, as the government focuses on removing empowerment and dismantling the remnants of the previous regime, but it did not clearly approach the sleeper cells of extremists in the Darfur region of western Sudan, and Turkey maintains and Qatar has good relations with many spectra active in it, which helped it influence its capabilities in wartime and when talking about peace.
The current general situation in this region explains an important aspect of the ongoing tension in Darfur. The more the transitional authority tries to quell another crisis that erupted, the Darfur path thus faces complex political and security dilemmas that prevented peace and kept the specter of war.
In response to these difficulties, many officials in Khartoum pointed the finger at Bashir remnants to cause tribal strife to continue isolating the margin from the center, which is benefiting from those affected by the success of the revolution.
The political, humanitarian and economic tricks that Ankara pursued with Khartoum stumbled and forced it not to give up developing relations with it, and Turkish interests became subject to further strikes. Ankara still exists in some areas of the conflict, but it is surrounded by the suspicions of large sectors of citizens who have never been comfortable with the growing external influence in their country, and they have many concerns about the old ties that brought together Ankara and the Sudanese Islamic movement.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan realized that the loss of Egypt and Sudan was a major blow to his Arab and African ambitions. The consequences of the fall of the two gates means a strategic setback for his project in the region, especially since the support operations that are provided to terrorists in Egyptian Sinai have not worked, and the skirmishes that Ankara is doing in cooperation with the supporters of the Bashir regime is fraught with risks in light of the encirclement suffered by these.
The Turkish regime tossed all its cards at once in the recent battle of West Libya, faster than the moves that it began since signing two naval and security memoranda of understanding last November with the National Accord government in Tripoli, to save Erdogan's Islamic project from the North African portal, restore pressure on Egypt, and force Khartoum not to take new escalatory steps.
Ankara has put a large part of its eggs in the basket of Libya, and it knows that failure completely undermines its project and folds many of its divisions, because returning to the front again needs equipment that requires a long time.
Currently, Ankara’s interests focus on securing its presence in western Libya, blocking the operations carried out by the Libyan National Army, so that it can go south to benefit from the security and political liquidity there, and the direction towards northern Chad, which suffers from chronic problems with the Boko Haram group, and pressure on Sudan from To the north, which is a soft region from which a direct road to Darfur can be opened, before Khartoum can reach a settlement with the armed movements and imposes its grip on the region, and prevents Ankara from circumventing it.
Turkey has failed to correct the path of its soft relations with Sudan, and fears that the tools it uses will lead to a dead end. Amid the weightlessness that Ankara suffers, political strikes may continue and its influence will be non-existent, because of Mosaic, Terrorists, mercenaries, militias, and armed gangs, who are sponsored by in Libya a bomb that can explode at any time.
