Turkey to continue Euphrates Shield operation in northern Syria, Erdogan says

Published: Updated:

Turkey's military will continue its operation in Syria's Afrin and Manbij regions, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday during a parliamentary address to his ruling AK Party.

In 2016, Turkey launched the Euphrates Shield operation on its Syrian border to eradicate what it called a "corridor of terror", made up by the dual threat of ISIS and Syrian Kurdish fighters.
