Erdogan Says Turkey Will Crush Kurdish Militia in Afrin

  • Erdogan Terror clearance operation to continue in Syria’s Afrin

"We want to reassure the people and government of Turkey that the U.S.is committed to preventing additional security risks and protecting our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally", Pahon said.

A YPG spokesman in Afrin said clashes erupted after midnight between his unit and Turkish troops near the border with Turkey. "With the Idlib operation, we are collapsing the western wing", Erdogan said, referring to Afrin.

U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) Commander Gen. Joseph Votel announced last month that they would establish border forces in Syria, which he said would help prevent the resurgence of Daesh.

Erdogan said the new operation into Afrin would be an extension of Turkey's 2016 incursion into northern Syria, which aimed to combat IS and stem the advance of USA -backed Kurdish forces.

Turkey's President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, disclosed this on Sunday saying operation against the Afrin enclave is aimed at "purging terror" from his country's southern border. Turkish troops are stationed in rebel-held territory on both sides of Afrin.

The power outage was caused by heavy rainfall, disrupting one of this year's biggest and most important technology-focused events. Some freakish things are happening at the Consumer Electronics Show , better known as CES , this year.


The issue is among many causing tense relations between Ankara and Washington, though Turkish officials said in November that US President Donald Trump apparently told them Washington would no longer supply weapons to the YPG. "They will see what we'll do in about a week", Erdogan said.

The US sees the YPG as the most effective fighting force against IS and past year provided it with arms ahead of major battles in Syria. Senior Kurdish official Hediye Yusuf wrote on Twitter that the Turkish operation against Afrin is a "violation" of the Syrian people and undermines global efforts to reach a political solution in Syria. Rojhat Roj said shelling of areas in Afrin district, in Aleppo province, had killed one YPG fighter and injured two civilians.

This makes nearly certain that the US designated terror group PKK's Syrian armed YPG militia will be deployed to the Turkish-Syrian border, a move that will further increase tensions in the area as well as with Washington.

Turkey has been working closely with Russian Federation and Iran to end the almost seven-year Syrian conflict despite Moscow and Tehran supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Ankara supporting the anti-Assad opposition.

Turkey and its Western allies, including the US, consider the PKK a terrorist organization. More than 40,000 people in Turkey have been killed since the 1980s after the PKK launched its rebellion.
