Donald Trump has blasted the Turkish assault on Syrian Kurds and ISIS fighters, saying he ‘does not endorse’ President Erdogan’s long-awaited military assault in Syria today.
Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the start of the offensive – called ‘Operation Peace Spring’ – in northern Syria this afternoon in a bid to ‘bring peace to the area’ by targeting Kurdish fighters whom Ankara regards as ‘terrorists’.
The article goes on to state the following:
President Trump – who ordered American troops out of the area – said Turkey’s incursion into the area was a ‘bad idea’ and said that Washington ‘does not endorse this attack.’
Trump said Turkey had committed to “ensuring no humanitarian crisis takes place – and we will hold them to this commitment.”
“Turkey has committed to protecting civilians, protecting religious minorities, including Christians, and ensuring no humanitarian crisis takes place — and we will hold them to this commitment,” Trump said. “In addition, Turkey is now responsible for ensuring all ISIS fighters being held captive remain in prison and that ISIS does not reconstitute in any way, shape, or form.”
Speaking to reporters, Trump said he will “wipe out” Turkey’s economy if Erdoğan tries to take out the Kurds.
