ÇAVUŞOĞLU: YPG WILL BE TARGETED IF THEY REMAIN IN THE WEST OF EUPHRATES





In a joint press conference with the Dutch Foreign Secretary Bert Koenders, Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu answered questions on the Operation Euphrates Shield. “Our actions in Jarablus are aiming to wipe ISIS out from that territory and it would not be possible only with air operations; if 5-6 countries had been cooperating so far, ISIS would have been gone now.
Çavuşoğlu added later on that YPG is targeting Arab residents in the region, committing ethnic cleansing and forcing people to migrate including Kurds that disagree with their mindset as well: “Given the fact that DAESH is our common enemy, then what do PYD and YPG make them uncomfortable? With urgency, they need to cross to the East of Euphrates, otherwise we will target them”.
