Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 2
By Rufiz Hafizoglu – Trend:
Arming and supporting PYD and YPG in Syria, the US is making a historical mistake, the Turkish media outlets quoted Ibrahim Kalin, spokesman for the Turkish president, as saying Feb. 2.
The US policy on Syria raises many questions, said Kalin.
On Jan. 20, the Turkish Armed Forces, together with the Free Syrian Army, launched the Operation Olive Branch in Afrin, Syria.
The spokesman noted that the Operation Olive Branch is directed not against Syrian Kurds, but against terrorists who threaten the security of Turkey, which is a member of NATO.
He added that more than 700 terrorist attacks have been committed so far from the Syria’s Afrin against Turkey and the Turkish border provinces are regularly subjected to rocket fire.
