Turkey for undermining fight against ISIS in Syria

US President Joe Biden on Thursday singled out Turkey for undermining the fight against ISIS with its military offensive in northeast Syria.

“The situation in and in relation to Syria, and in particular the actions by the Government of Turkey to conduct a military offensive into northeast Syria, undermines the campaign to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, endangers civilians, and further threatens to undermine the peace, security, and stability in the region, and continues to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States,” Biden said in a letter to Pelosi.

The Kurds, backed by the US, have played a significant role in the fight to defeat ISIS and other radical groups. Turkey has been accused of arming terrorist groups to fight back against the Kurdish YPG, which it considers an affiliate of the PKK — a dubbed “terrorist” organization by Turkey.
