BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told NTV on Tuesday that the next phase of Operation Euphrates Shield may include a stint in Iraq’s Sinjar Region.

The Turkish leader emphasized that his armed forces will concentrate on both the Islamic State (ISIL) and Kurdish-led “Kurdistan Workers Party” (PKK); these two groups are both fighting one another in the Sinjar Region of Iraq.

“There are around 2,500 PKK terrorists in the efforts to create this second Qandil,” Erdogan said, as quoted by Yeni Safak.

The Qandil Mountains, which are located in Iraq, have become the surrogate home for the PKK over the recent years; this is due to the constant harassment they face from the Turkish authorities.

The first phase of Operation Euphrates Shield concluded last month, when the Turkish Army and their rebel allies seized the key town of Al-Bab in eastern Aleppo.

Atatürk was accepted. Another sultan for an Ottoman Empire v2.0, I deeply doubt it to be allowed. He’s getting already on the nerves of EVERYBODY for a while and if he thinks he’s fooling anyone or being feared, he’s freaking wrong. Those whom Zeus decides to doom, he makes them insane first.
