Assad adviser says Syria to treat Turkey, US as invaders

BEIRUT - An adviser to Syrian President Bashar Assad said in a TV interview on Tuesday that the United States and Turkey were on Syrian land illegally, and that the Syrian government would deal with them as "invader countries."

Bouthaina Shaaban said the Syrian government would not give up on the city of Raqqa, which was liberated from Islamic State last month by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, adding that what happened in Iraqi Kurdistan "should be a lesson" to the Kurdish forces.
