Erdogan: Ankara ready to clear northern Syria of Kurds

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey will clear its southern border of terrorists, starting from Syria’s Manbij.

Speaking at a campaign rally in Iskenderun district of southern Hatay province, the Turkish leader said that Turkey would give terrorists "lessons throughout our southern border starting from Manbij."

He recalled Turkey’s successful Operation Olive Branch in Syria’s Afrin and said his country will not allow a terror corridor against itself in northern Syria. 

"We will establish a safe zone where our Syrian brothers can return home peacefully," Anadolu Agency cited Erdogan as saying.
