Turkish Forces Amass on Syrian Border Awaiting the US Departure - Controversy Who Will Erdogan Attack? ISIS or the Kurds?
12-25-18, Guardian -- The foreign minister, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, said Turkey had the ‘strength to neutralise’ Isis on its own. He said Turkish forces are determined to cross the Euphrates river into Kurdish-held territory in Syria as soon as possible, despite previous suggestions from both Washington and Ankara that Turkey would delay the proposed military campaign. “If Turkey says it will enter, it will”. While no time frame was given, Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, said at the end of December 2018 that Turkey would stall its offensive as part of coordination with the US over the planned withdrawal of US forces.
The US has long partnered with Syrian Kurdish-led forces in the battle against Islamic terror group ISIS, although Turkey views them as an extension of the separatist Kurdish PKK movement within its own borders whom it deems a terrorist group. Turkey will take over the remnants of the fight to remove the ISIS from its last slivers of territory in Syria and has the “strength to neutralise” them. The future of the international coalition remains unclear.
French president, Emmanuel Macron, criticized the US pullout of Syria and said French forces will remain in Kurdish-held Syria as a buffer. Turkey spokesman said, "If France is staying in Syria to protect the YPG, that will neither benefit France nor the YPG,” referring to the main Kurdish militia in Syria, adding that Turkey would take its cues on the matter from Washington rather than Paris.
