Turkey hints at new operation in Syria

Officials in Ankara are more than aware that executing Operation Euphrates Shield proved to be much more difficult than expected. It was successful in the end because Turkey was fighting IS and enjoyed support from Washington and Moscow. That support evaporated as soon as Turkey turned on the YPG.

Euphrates Sword could prove to be equally if not more difficult as long as the YPG continues to enjoy support from the United States and Russia.
