Turkish president threatens Syrian Kurds amid increasing clashes in northeast Syria

President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an delivered remarks at the 7th Ordinary Provincial Congress of the Justice and Development (AK) Party in Kayseri and the key handover ceremony of Kayseri Urban Transformation Project, the website of the Turkish presidency said.

“Recently, we have seen that the efforts for a new terrorist formation near the Iraqi border in Syria have been accelerated. Let me say this more clearly; there is an effort to establish a terror state there. I would like to say this without beating around the bush: Turkey will never allow the establishment of a terror state right beside its borders. We will do whatever is necessary and drain this swamp of terrorism.”

Since Tuesday, there has been an increase in Turkish attacks, especially near Ain al-Issa and Manbij. This comes just over a year after Ankara launched an offensive in northern Syria on October 9, 2019, killing dozens of civilians and displacing hundreds of thousands of others. The campaign sparked several allegations of acts of war crimes committed by Ankara-aligned groups.
