Turkey’s military operation in Syria ends

Dünya Executive - - OVERVIEW -

Turkey has officially ended the Euphrates Shield military operation it launched in Syria last August, Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Wednesday. Yildirim suggested there might be more crossborde­r campaigns to come. Turkey sent troops, tanks and warplanes to support Free Syrian Army rebels, push ISIS fighters away from its border and stop the advance of Kurdish militia fighters. “Operation Euphrates Shield has been successful and is finished. Any operation following this one will have a different name,” Yildirim said in an interview with broadcaste­r NTV.
