The predatory motives behind NATO’s genocidal covert war on Syria are getting ever more transparent.

"The Assad regime, frankly, is the root of all evil here."

[U.S. Department of State's Deputy Spokesperson Mark Toner, daily press briefing, 6 August 2015]

Takvim, 5 August 2015

Aleppo [to become] the 82nd [province of Turkey]

A “buffer zone” will be set up in the north of Syria. This area, which includes Aleppo, will be fully controlled by Turkey.

[Once] U.S. and Turkey sealed the “Incirlik [Airbase] Agreement”, the political and military balances began shifting rapidly. [...]

U.S. newspapers reported that “the new map [of Syria] will be drawn during Erdogan’s meeting with Obama”. [...] 

As for the British media, they published more detailed analyses [and] put forward the claim that “the buffer zone [in Syria] will be granted to Turkey”.

Takvim produced a map of that area [in northern Syria] which is preparing to become our 82nd province.

[editorial note: According to the map in Takvim's front page, the prospective "buffer zone" contains not only Aleppo but also Idlib and the north of Latakia.]
