The United Nations has warned Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan against killings of Kurdish civilians over the launched airstrikes carried out on the Syrian border.
Donald Trump has reportedly hands off sudden from northern Syria.
The UN is said to be ‘preparing for the worst’ and has warned Turkey not to allow a civilian massacre on the scale of the Bosnian war after the US announced it would step aside and allow President Tayyip Erdogan to move in across the Syrian border.
Tonight, BNL Breaking News tweeted: ‘Reports of Turkish airstrikes on the Kurdish-controlled Semelka border crossing between Syria and Iraq, comes just hours after US withdraws troops from Syria and “allowed Turkish invasion”.’
Kurdish fighters, who have led the fight against ISIS, said they had been ‘stabbed in the back’ by Trump’s decision and accused the US of turning its back on its allies and risking gains made in the fight against the Islamic State group…
Trump responded to fears of Turkish military action targeting civilians by saying he will ‘totally destroy and obliterate the economy of Turkey’ if it stepped out of line.
He tweeted this afternoon: ‘As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!). They must, with Europe and others, watch over the captured ISIS fighters and families.
‘The U.S. has done far more than anyone could have ever expected, including the capture of 100% of the ISIS Caliphate. It is time now for others in the region, some of great wealth, to protect their own territory. THE USA IS GREAT!’
According to the report Trump’s threats have caused Turkey’s currency to slide to its lowest level in more than a month.
