Turkish Military Attacking Til Tamir, Syria
- 🎬 Video
- ℹ️ Description
👉Turkey last month invaded northeastern Syria to push out Syrian Kurdish fighters whom it considers terrorists for their links to a Kurdish insurgency inside Turkey.
But the United States and Syrian Kurdish fighters have been allies and partnered in the fight against the Islamic State terror group. The relationship has strained ties between Washington and Ankara, who are NATO allies.
After an abrupt and widely criticized decision by U.S. President Donald Trump to withdraw American troops from this part of Syria, the Kurdish forces approached the Syrian government and Russia for protection. Syrian government troops and Russian military police subsequently moved into areas along the border.
