Turkey warns it may strike Kurdish rebels inside Syria
ISTANBUL — Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Syria of letting Turkey’s Kurdish rebels operate inside the north of the country and warned that Ankara would not hesitate to strike against them.
“In the north, it (President Bashar Al Assad’s government) has allotted five provinces to the Kurds, to the terrorist organisation,” Erdogan said on Turkish television late on Wednesday, referring to the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK).
He said the move was explicitly aimed against Turkey and warned that “there will undoubtedly be a response on our part to this attitude”.
Asked if Ankara would strike fleeing rebels after an attack on Turkish soil, Erdogan said: “That’s not even a matter of discussion, it is a given. That is the objective, that is what must be done.”
“That is what we have been doing and will continue to do in Iraq,” he said during a programme aired on Kanal 24.
