Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is warning of an imminent attack on a U.S.-backed Syrian Kurdish militia.
“We have finished our preparations. The operation can start any time,” Erdogan declared to supporters at a rally Monday.
Turkish forces are massed along the border with Syria’s Idlib enclave, which is controlled by the YPG, a Kurdish militia Ankara accuses of being linked to an insurgency in Turkey.
Erdogan has repeatedly warned the YPG presence in Idlib would be ended. As the Turkish military continues to build up its forces in the region, its artillery bombarded the enclave during the weekend. There also reports reports of special forces carrying out cross-border operations against YPG targets.
The latest escalation in tensions was triggered by Washington’s announcement it is working with the YPG to create a border force.
“America has acknowledged it is in the process of creating a terror army on our border,” Erdogan said Monday, “What we have to do is nip this terror army in the bud.”
