Operation Spring Shield was and is still one of the most important milestones in the Syrian conflict as it left a tangible impact on the political equation.
The coordination that took place between the Syrian National Army and the Turkish army put an end to the arrogance of the Assad regime and its allies.
The spectacular successes of Operation Spring Shield occurred at a time when the whole world was turning a blind eye to the continued suffering of the Syrian people. The operation prevented another humanitarian catastrophe in Syria’s north and prevented a new wave of mass displacement.
Operation Spring Shield came as a natural response to the calls of the Syrian people and as a move seeking to make up for the international community’s apathy.
It is imperative that the international community rethink its options regarding the situation in Syria based on the lessons learned from this operation which confirmed the need for an effective international mechanism to stop the carnage and implement UN resolutions, and hold criminals accountable.
Glory goes out to the fallen heroes of the Syrian National Army and Turkish army.
