Turkey: Preparations ‘complete’ for Syria military action

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Kurdish forces have warned any military escalation in northeast Syria could lead to the return of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, or ISIS) group and cause mass displacement of people.

Turkish troops are gathering near the Syrian border in preparation for an offensive against the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces or SDF.

Turkey considers the SDF as a “terrorist” group and wants to drive them away from its border.
