Turkey plans to pursue targets in Northern Syria


Turkey plans to pursue targets in northern Syria after it completes a cross-border operation against PKK militants in Iraq. Official said Ankara will clear threats along its southern border “one way or another”.
The government has blamed Kurdish militants for the blast on Istanbul’s Istiklal Avenue that killed six people and injured more than 80.
Turkey has conducted three incursions so far into northern Syria against the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia. President Tayyip Erdogan has said that Turkey could conduct another operation against the YPG. Turks are concerned that more attacks could occur ahead of elections next year.
No group has claimed responsibility for Monday’s blast that killed 39 people on the Ataturk Avenue in Istanbul. Police have detained 50 people as part of the investigation into the blast, Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag was quoted as saying.
