Erdogan: Turkey to continue bombing terrorist positions in Syria
Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 15
By Rufiz Hafizoglu – Trend:
Turkey will continue bombing positions of Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) and Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) terrorists, the Turkish media quoted the country’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as saying Jan. 15.
Erdogan said that Turkey will continue fighting against PYD and YPG and all the terrorist organizations in the region.
He also noted that the US position on PYD and YPG is wrong.
Earlier, the Turkish Armed Forces hit the positions of PYD and YPG in the Syrian city of Afrin.
Earlier, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said Turkey doesn’t rule out a new military operation in Afrin. He noted that Ankara will not allow creation of a new state in northern Syria, near the southern borders of Turkey.
On Oct. 25, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that a new military operation may be held in Afrin.
Turkey has been moving military equipment to its border with Syria since June 21. Military equipment is being deployed in Turkey’s south-central province of Kilis, which borders Syrian territories controlled by YPG and PYD.
