The US agreement with Turkey to withdraw YPG/PKK terrorists from the safe zone in 120 hours comes to an end on Tuesday evening, but civilians say the group is making it hard for them to cross into Iraq.
For the past few months, Ankara has reiterated its plan to launch a military operation against the YPG in northern Syria. But the terror group did not clear the region of civilians, raising concerns that they are being used as human shields.
Turkey says it will undertake a military operation east of the Euphrates River in Syria to clear Syria's northern border of the YPG, the PKK's Syrian branch, and to establish a safe zone.
Turkey has begun the fight against PKK/PYD terrorists in northern Syria following US President Donald Trump’s announcement that the US is pulling its troops from the region.
