Turkey’s incursion into Syria aims to obliterate a main U.S. ally in the fight against ISIS.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said he planned to push back the Kurdish YPG, a key U.S. partner in the fight against ISIS, when he announced the invasion on Wednesday.

The article goes on to state the following:

The YPG comprise the bulk of the Syrian Democratic Forces, a U.S.-supported ground corps fighting ISIS. The ISIS caliphate in Iraq and Syria was defeated earlier this year, but remnants pose a threat to both countries. The Syrian Democratic Forces were fighting ISIS as recently as last week, capturing a local commander, a financier, and an explosives expert responsible for an attack on a medical clinic.

“The Turkish Armed Forces, together with the Syrian National Army, just launched #OperationPeaceSpring against PKK/YPG and Daesh terrorists in northern Syria,” Erdoğan tweeted. “Our mission is to prevent the creation of a terror corridor across our southern border, and to bring peace to the area.”

“#OperationPeaceSpring will neutralize terror threats against Turkey and lead to the establishment of a safe zone, facilitating the return of Syrian refugees to their homes,” he continued. “We will preserve Syria’s territorial integrity and liberate local communities from terrorists.”
