Turkey will carry out military operation in Syria’s Afrin, says ‘has no option’

Turkey will carry out military operation in Syria’s Afrin
Turkey will carry out a military operation into Afrin in northern Syria, Defense Minister Nurettin Canikli vowed in an interview with broadcaster A Haber on the morning of Jan. 19.


“The threat level against Turkey is increasing day by day. This operation will be carried out and we will combat terrorism,” Canikli said, referring to a long-anticipated operation against the People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Afrin, seen by Ankara as organically linked to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

The Afrin operation should be carried out without delay and that Ankara and Moscow would continue talks about Turkey's planned military action, he said.

The U.S. State Department on Jan. 18 urged Turkey not to take any action in northern Syria, calling on Ankara to remain focused on the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

At a news briefing, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the U.S. wanted Turkey to abstain from violence in the northwestern city of Afrin.

“We would call [...] on the Turks to not take any actions of that sort,” Nauert said.
