Turkey has stressed that it will not “allow the formation of a terrorist corridor along its southern border with Syria,” and towards that end has promised an operation east of the Euphrates in Syria, against the YPG- the Syrian offshoot of the illegal PKK. PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU.
The expected operation would follow up on two other Turkish operations in Syria since 2016, Operation Euphrates Shield and Operation Olive Branch.
