Alarm Builds As Turkey Gets Closer To Invading Northern Syria

Turkey has launched recent air strikes targeting Kurdish units in Syria and Iraq

  • Turkey’s planned ground invasion into Syria to root-out the U.S.-allied Kurds could potentially lead to the release of thousands of imprisoned Islamic State terrorists.
  • In northeastern Syria, Syrian Kurdish forces have imprisoned thousands of ISIS terrorists from more than 50 countries.
  • The Pentagon’s press secretary, Brigadier General Patrick Ryder, said, “Recent air strikes in Syria directly threatened the safety of U.S. personnel who are working in Syria with local partners to defeat ISIS and maintain custody of more than 10,000 ISIS detainees.”
