Turkey announced the completion of the operation “Shield of the Euphrates”

On May 29, the National Security Council of Turkey announced the completion of the operation “Shield of the Euphrates” in connection “with its successful completion”.

At the same time, in an interview to NTV, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim stressed that if there is any a threat to the country’s security, a new military operation is possible.

Despite the fact that Turkish President Erdogan regularly announces Turkey’s “invaluable efforts” in the fight against ISIS, the actions of the Turkish military often led not to the elimination of terrorists but to the deaths of civilians, and in some cases to casualties in the Syrian Army. Against the background of these incidents, the official Damascus earlier demanded from the UN and the international community to oblige Turkey to withdraw its armed forces from the Syrian territory and stop “acts of aggression.”
