Erdogan pledges to impose safe areas east of the Euphrates in Syria
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country will take action east of the Euphrates River in Syria, and will impose safe areas as it did in the north-west of the country, according to quoted newspaper “Hurriyet” and the media.
Turkey has carried out a military operation to wrest control of the Syrian region of Afrin from units protecting the Syrian Kurdish people, which Ankara considers a terrorist organization.

People’s protection units also control the area east of the Euphrates River.

“In the coming period, we will increase the number of safe areas in Syria to include the eastern Euphrates,” Erdogan was quoted as saying during a visit to New York.

Erdogan has warned in the past to launch new military operations along the Turkish border, after its previous attack in Syria.
