Damascus, Nov 1 (Canadian-Media): A warning of war was issued by the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad if Turkey's troop fail to pullout from northern Syria, media reports said.

Asad had pointed out recent Turkey-Russia deal on creating a safe zone in northern Syria had been conducive in pulling back Kurdish militia from the border region in coordination with the Syrian army.
Turkey's launch of military into northern Syria in early October was to drive Kurdish fighters out of the border region, following the pullout of U.S. troops.
A deal had been reached between Turkey and Russia last Tuesday to allow the Kurdish fighters to withdraw 30 km away from the border and conduct joint Turkey-Russia patrols in the region.
Asad also added that if the Syrians are united, the presence of US forces in Syria will withdraw by themselves.
