Turkey will attack the Kurdish fighters with tanks and soldiers

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey will attack Kurdish militants with tanks and soldiers in reference to the possibility of launching a ground attack on a Kurdish armed group in Syria after escalating reprisals along the Syrian border.

Erdogan’s statements come as Turkish artillery continues to bombard Kurdish bases and other targets near the Syrian cities of Tal Rifaat and Kobani, two Syrian military sources told Reuters.

In a speech in north-eastern Turkey, Erdogan said: “For several days we have been attacking terrorists with our planes, cannons and rifles. God willing, we will eliminate them all with our tanks and soldiers as soon as possible.”

The Turkish president had previously said the operations would not be limited to airstrikes but could also include ground forces. Turkey has conducted several major military operations against the Kurdish People’s Defense Units (YPG) and the terrorist organization “ISIS” in northern Syria in recent years.
