Syrian President Bashar Assad said Wednesday that Turkey has a legitimate right to stage a cross-border offensive against Kurdish rebels based in Iraq. "We understand that such an operation would be aimed toward a certain group which attacks Turkish soldiers. We support decisions that Turkey has on its agenda, we are backing them," Assad told reporters. "We accept this as Turkey's legitimate right."
