Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Friday (October 11) that Islamic State militants held in northeast Syria could escape as a result of a Turkish military operation there, the Interfax news agency reported.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is planning to announce multi-billion dollar deals with Saudi Arabia and the UAE as he visits both countries next week, Kallanish Energy learns.

Such buffer zones were guarded by Syrian Kurds but now "the Turkish army is moving in and the Kurds are abandoning those camps", creating the power vacuum.

"I'm not sure if the Turkish army can rapidly get this under control", Putin said, speaking during a visit to Turkmenistan.

He added that according to the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Russian General Staff, there are hundreds if not thousands of militants in the area.

"This is a real threat to us", Putin told a meeting of heads of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), an association of ex-Soviet countries.

Trump-who abruptly withdrew US support for the SDF leaving them open to the subsequent Turkish assault-dismissed concerns about escaped fighters this week.

Trump has always been frustrated at the refusal of European nations to take back their citizens who traveled to fight for ISIS' so-called caliphate.
