Turkey's offensive into Syria: More casualties, displacement

Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he would

The mixed messages from President Donald Trump over the course of this week, however, tell a different story.

The European Union's foreign affairs chief, Federica Mogherini, in a statement released by Germany's foreign office, called on Turkey to stop its military action in Syria, to prevent undermining the stability of the region.

"As has been the case in its previous counter-terrorism operations, Turkey's response will be proportionate, measured and responsible", the letter said. Iraq was coordinating with the United States, Russia, Turkey and the SDF, he said, "to protect our security" and to prevent a repeat of the Islamic State rampage through Iraq that began in the summer of 2014.

In a meeting Friday with reporters, Sedar Kilic, the Turkish ambassador to the United States, said that his government had no intention of "slaughtering" Kurdish fighters, as some U.S. lawmakers have alleged, but that it was determined to bring an end to Kurdish occupation of the border area and would not stop until it had reached its goals.

Reuters is reporting that the explosion happened near a usa military outpost near Kobane, Syria, but that no us personnel were reported injured. "Shot in the arm to the bad guys".

American troops had pulled out of the border area in Syria earlier this week and Mr Trump said the estimated 1000 United States troops were not in harm's way. "This puts future alliances and partnerships in jeopardy if we don't hold up our end of the bargain".

"This crackdown violates Turkey's obligations under global human right law, and it will not make the brutal realities of the offensive magically disappear".

A senior Turkish official in Washington suggested that the US mediation offer would not be welcomed in Ankara due to Turkey's opposition to negotiating with terrorists.

The third such Turkish operation since the start of the war in Syria was met with fierce global condemnation over what many saw as the blatant betrayal of a faithful ally. It includes the line: "Let's be honest - the Kurds didn't show up for us at Normandy or Inchon or Khe Sanh or Kandahar".

Medecins Sans Frontieres said a hospital in Tel Abyad had been forced to shut after most of its staff fled. "We pushed back very hard at all levels for the Turks not to commence this operation", Esper said.

Trump told reporters Wednesday that he learned the Kurdish didn't fight alongside the U.S.in the 1940s in a "very, very powerful article". The SDF immediately condemned the decision, saying that they would defend themselves against a Turkish attack.

"Turkey is now responsible for ensuring that all ISIS fighters in detention in prison, remain in prison and that ISIS does not reconstitute itself in any way, shape, or form", Craft said, referring to IS.

Republicans in the US House of Representatives have announced plans to introduce a sanctions bill against Turkey, and President Donald Trump has offered to mediate.

Iraq, meanwhile, is sending military units to reinforce its border with Syria to prevent any new influx of Islamic State fighters, according to Maj.

'This is insanity. I don't know what they call atrocities, but they are happening'.

"To be clear, we are not abandoning our Kurdish partner forces, and U.S. troops remain with them in other parts of Syria".

"Look, we have no soldiers in Syria". "We have no soldiers". We've won. We've beat ISIS. "Take a victory, United States". He lamented "the dramatic harm" done to the two nations' relationship.

"This is a sad tragedy of the Middle East", she added.

The endless wars, it seems, may not be coming to an end quite yet.
