Turkey Will Continue Syria Offensive
Published on Aug 31, 2016
Turkey’s incursion into Syria is already under fire. On Wednesday, Russia called on Ankara to stop airstrikes on ethnic groups, particularly Kurdish forces that are fighting Daesh terrorists. The Syrian government, boiling with anger over the offensive, says Ankara’s presence on Syrian soil is illegal and has not been coordinated with Damascus. Iran has also voiced concern about the death of civilians during Turkey’s air and ground offensives. Ankara began its Syria onslaught last Wednesday under the pretext of fighting Daesh. The military campaign has mainly targeted Kurdish troops that are considered as terrorists by Turkey.
