Turkey launched an attack in Syria after the USA withdrew its troops

01:08, 10 October 2019

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan launched on offensive in Northern Syria, as US troops cleared the way. Turkish Lira weakened.

Sunday, US President Donald Trump announced that he ordered American troops to leave Northern Syria, despite criticism from his own administration. 

The US troops have been fighting against ISIL alongside the Syrian Democratic Forces, a military group led by the Kurdish People's Protection Units. 

 The Kurdish group is labeled by the Turkish government as a ''terrorist group''. 


Donald Trump threatened Turkey with measures that would devastate its economy if it dared to attack the Kurds in Northern Syria. 

 The Turkish administration disregarded the warning and attacked the area both on land and from the air. 

 According to the Rojava Information Center, quoted by the NY Times, the death toll stood at seven victims on Wednesday. 

Critics worry that a weakening of the Syrian democratic forces could help Syrian President Bashar al-Assad gain the upper hand in the protracted conflict.  

US Senator Lindsey Graham warned that the US retreat could help ISIL and called for sanctions against Turkey. 

The Turkish Lira fell 3% against the dollar since Monday open.
