Turkish President Says He Will Launch Ground Military Operations Against Kurdish Forces in Iraq and Syria Xinhua News Agency, Ankara, November 22 (Reporter Wang Tengfei) Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on the 22nd that Turkey will launch ground military operations against the Kurdish armed "People's Protection Units" in Iraq and Syria as soon as possible to eradicate "terrorists." Erdogan said on the same day that in the past few days, Turkey has been using planes and drones to attack "terrorists" in response to the attack in Istanbul. He stressed that Turkey will use tanks, artillery and soldiers to eradicate "terrorists" as soon as possible. He said that the purpose of Turkey's military operations is to protect the safety of the country and citizens, which is Turkey's legal right. On the 20th, the Turkish army launched an air strike code-named "Claw Sword" against the bases of the Kurdish Workers Party and the "People's Protection Forces" in Iraq and northern Syria. The air strike is considered to be in retaliation for the bombing attack in Istanbul, Turkey's largest city, on the 13th of this month. Erdogan's statement this time shows that Turkey's strikes against armed personnel in the region will not be limited to air strikes, but will be transferred to cross-border ground military operations. Founded in 1979, the PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the European Union. The PKK seeks to establish an independent state by force in the Kurdish areas on Turkey's borders with Iraq, Iran and Syria. The "People's Protection Forces" have been active in the Kurdish-inhabited northern region of Syria since the outbreak of the Syrian civil war, and currently control a large area of northern Syria. Six people were killed and 81 injured in an explosion on Independence Avenue next to Taksim Square in the center of Istanbul on the afternoon of the 13th. Turkey pointed the source of the attack to the Kurdistan Workers Party and the Syrian Kurdish armed "People's Protection Units". (Editors in charge: Yu Yang, Cui Yue) Share for more people to see
