Ankara: Turkey will launch a new operation in Syria against a US-backed Kurdish militia that Ankara considers a terrorist group in the “next few days”, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday.

“We will start an operation to free the east of the Euphrates from the separatist terrorist organisation in the next few days,” Erdogan said in Ankara, referring to territory held by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG). Turkey says the YPG is an offshoot of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).
