The Debate – Turkey Syria Incursion
On Wednesday Turkey launched Operation Euphrates Shield in northern Syria by sending in tanks, planes and ground forces under the pretext of liberating the town of Jarablus from Daesh terrorists. But it soon became apparent that offensive was just as much as Syrian Kurdish forces, as against Daesh at least. What has ensued since has been a sling of claims and counter claims. Turkey accuses the Syrian Kurdish fighters of ethnic cleansing, while the country itself stands accused of killing around 35 civilians in its latest offensive.
As Turkey vows to protect its borders against “terrorist organizations”, we ask at what cost? And is regional security really the objective here? Stay tuned to this edition of The Debate.
