BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:55 P.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan sent another stern warning to the United States (US) and their allies during his meeting with provincial governors on Friday.

“This summer will be scorching hot for both the terrorist organisation and its supporters,” Erdogan stated.

“If there are those who are prepared to sacrifice themselves for this cause, we are up for that challenge,” the Turkish President continued.

“Turkey can no longer stomach the U.S.’ delaying tactics. We are carefully watching those (who are supporting) the terrorist organisation (PYD). If someone is planning to spend $500-550 million to support (the terrorists), are we supposed to wish them good luck?” he added.

Erdogan’s latest threats come just days after his forces seized over 20 percent of the YPG-held Afrin region in northern Aleppo.

if he was not a coward and was serious then he would kick the US out of turkey and he would have invaded north eastern syria where the americans are helping the kurds instead of attacking afrin which has not been supported by the americans
