As Euphrates Shield comes to an end, Erdoğan says Turkey will launch new anti-terror ops in spring
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on Monday that Turkey is now preparing for new anti-terror operations elsewhere in the region against terrorist groups after completing the first stage of Operation Euphrates Shield, Daily Sabah reports.
Addressing crowds in northeastern Trabzon province during the opening ceremony for a new city park, Erdoğan said that Turkey was planning to launch new anti-terror operations in different regions near the border to drive terrorist groups such as the PKK, the People's Protection Units (YPG) and Daesh out of the country.
"Turkey has nice surprises for [these] terrorist groups in the upcoming months. We will turn spring into a dark winter for terrorists," he said.
