Syria to counter Turkey by ‘all legitimate means’: Assad

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said Thursday his forces will counter Turkey's invasion by "all legitimate means," in his first remarks since deploying troops near the border to support Ankara's Kurdish rivals.

We "will respond to it and confront it, in all its forms, anywhere in Syria, using all legitimate means at our disposal," Assad told Iraqi national security adviser Faleh al-Fayad on the ninth day of Turkey's assault against Kurdish forces.
