Turkey launched an airstrike against Kurdish rebels in Syria


Turkey launched an airstrike against US-backed Kurdish rebels in northeastern Syria following orders President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan in his tweet announced the launch of a military operation called ‘Peace Spring’ against Kurdish rebels. He said the purpose of this peace operation was to eliminate the terrorists in northern Syria and to establish peace in the region. The Turkish president added that the operation would be carried out in conjunction with Turkish forces, opposition, and the Free Syrian Army.

Following the announcement of Tayyip Erdogan, Turkish fighter jets bombed Kurdish militia bases in the Syrian border town of Ras-al-Ain. According to a foreign news agency, several blasts have been heard in the area of ​​Ras-Al-Ain, while the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), led by the Kurds, have also confirmed the Turkish attacks.

According to the SDF, two civilians were killed and several injured in Turkish airstrikes. On the other hand, the army of Turkey is ready to enter Syria and ground operations are likely to start at any time. It is to be remembered that after Turkey’s decision to launch an operation against Kurdish militia in Syria last week, the US announced its withdrawal of troops from the Syrian Turkish border.

After that, US President Donald Trump threatened to destroy Turkey’s economy, saying that if Turkey did something beyond Syria; it would destroy Turkey’s economy as we have done before.

But the next day, Trump invited the Turkish president to visit Washington to ease tensions in the US and Turkey, saying that “people forget that Turkey is America’s biggest trading partner, Turkey builds a steel structure of F35 fighter jet. It’s been a good experience of settling down issues with Turkey.”
