Turkey to continue operation in northern Syria: Erdogan

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday (January 9) the country’s military will continue its operations in Afrin and Manbij regions in northern Syria.

Erdogan made the comments during a parliamentary address to his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), Reuters reported.

Turkey launched the Euphrates Shield operation on its Syrian border in 2016 to destroy what it called a “corridor of terror”, made up by the dual threat of ISIS and Kurdish fighters in Syria.

Turkish military launched more than 576 attacks against Afrin canton in Rojava [Kurdish controlled areas in northern Syria] in 2017, according to Hawar News Agency.

The Turkish operation, however, comes without the Syrian government’s permission, prompting repeated calls by Damascus to stop its military intervention.
