US involvement in the Middle East, together with the creation of demons might lead to consequences that are going to cause blowback and causalities among US civilians at home, Foreign Policy in Focus columnist Dr. Conn Hallinan told RT.
Ankara will join the anti-ISIS coalition by providing jets and airbases as part of an agreement with the US, the country’s foreign ministry said in a statement citing the growing threat to Turkey’s security posed by the jihadists.
Turkey has agreed to allow US drones and bombers to launch airstrikes against Islamic State targets from two airbases near the Syrian border, according to multiple reports. US officials called the decision a “game changer” in the conflict with ISIS.
A convoy of Turkish tanks entered Syrian territory to evacuate the tomb of the Ottoman Empire’s forefather and a small garrison guarding it. The military operation launched to rescue the holy place was coordinated with the Kurds.
The apparently unstoppable progress of the IS terrorist group now seems to have come to an end on the Syrian-Turkish border. Kurdish fighters, opposition forces and coalition air strikes have thwarted the Caliph's designs on the town of Kobani.
