Turkey to start operation east of Euphrates in Syria in a 'few days', Erdogan says
Turkey will start an operation east of the Euphrates river in northern Syria in a "few days" President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday, a move that could further complicate relations with the United States.
Ankara and Washington have long been at odds over Syria policy, where the United States has backed the YPG Kurdish militia in the fight against Islamic State. Turkey says the YPG is a terrorist organisation.
