“The Turkish air operation in northern Syria is an indicator of our justified fight against the terrorism” chief adviser to Turkish president said
Turkey is committed to preventing terrorists from nesting near its borders, said an official on Friday.
“We will never allow terrorist organizations trying to nest in our border regions,” Akif Cagatay Kilic, chief adviser to the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.
Kilic added: “The aerial operation launched by our heroic Turkish army in northern Syria is an indicator of our justified fight against terrorism”.
According to what the Turkish Foreign Ministry said on Friday, that the Turkish army carried out comprehensive operations against YPG/PKK terrorist targets in Iraq and Syria in line with Ankara’s right to self-defense following Sunday’s foiled attack in Türkiye’s capital, Ankara.
It is worth mentioning that a suicide bomber blew himself up outside the Interior Ministry gate while another terrorist was killed by security forces on Sunday. Two police officers suffered minor injuries in the attack. The Turkish Interior Ministry has confirmed the attackers’ ties to the terrorist group PKK.
On the other hand, the PKK carried out its terrorist campaign that lasted more than 35 years against Turkey, as it listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and EU – has been responsible for the deaths of more than 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants. The YPG is its Syrian branch.
