Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has vowed to expand operations against Kurdish forces in Syria, as he did against the PKK in northern Iraq, even threatening to crush the heads of Kurdish forces.
The Turkish President said that “we will crush the heads of the terrorist organization,” he said, referring to the YPG members operating in Syria, which Turkey considers a branch of the PKK.
When asked about Turkey’s plans to escalate military operations against the YPG (SDF) in Syria and the PKK in northern Iraq, the Turkish President informed that Turkish forces will strike both of them.
Turkey has labeled the PKK a terrorist group, saying the group poses a danger to the country’s safety. “Terrorists” in northern Iraq and northern Syria would continue to be targeted by Turkish forces until they are fully destroyed, Erdogan said.
