'Sometimes NATO Ally' Turkey planning to enter Syria?
'Sometimes NATO Ally' Turkey planning to enter Syria? We will 'act militarily' against ISIS in coming days.(RT).
Turkey has plans to “act militarily” against Islamic State (formerly ISIS/ISIL) in the coming days, the country's foreign minister says. It comes amid speculation that the jihadists are partly behind last month's Ankara bombings that killed 102 people.
"Daesh [ISIS] threatens our way of life and security...We have plans to act militarily against them in the coming days. You will see. We should all stand together against this danger," Turkish Foreign Minister Feridun Sinirlioğlu said during a conference on the future of the Middle East, held in Erbil in northern Iraq's Kurdish region.
The foreign minister went on to state that Turkey will continue to support Iraq and the Iraqi Kurdish region in its fight against Islamic State and other terror groups.
"We will continue our efforts to eliminate all terrorist organizations. We will act in a responsible manner so that the Kurdish region and Iraq can be successful in the fight against terror. This is a very clear message to Iraq and the Kurdish region for a bright future," he said.
It comes less than one month after two powerful bombs exploded in the Turkish capital, Ankara, killing 102 people. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he believes Islamic State, Kurdish militants and Syrian intelligence could all have played a role in the attack. Hmmmm.....This 'madman' will start WW III in the end. Read the full story here.
