Turkey to set up refugee camps near Syria's Idlib

The Pentagon on Monday acknowledged a pause in the war against Daesh a day earlier, blaming it on the SDF redirecting its militants from other fronts to Afrin, where Turkey is fighting against the group.

.

The interesting thing is that on March 5, the day when the Pentagon spokesman accused Turkey of distracting from the fight against ISIL, Turkish police detained 16 ISIL militants who had infiltrated from Iraq and Syria and were allegedly preparing attacks against US targets.

Ankara kicked off its military assault on Afrin in order to eliminate the YPG, which it considers to be terrorists because of alleged associations with Kurdish insurgents in Turkey.

"We took the hard decision to pull our forces out of Deir Ezzor province and battlefronts against Daesh to head to the Afrin battle", said Abu Omar al Idlibi of the SDF.

In January, however, Turkey invaded northern Syria, attacking the YPG's Afrin District, and vowing to hit the rest of the YPG's territory, starting with Manbij and advancing eastward.

The US strategy for fighting against ISIS within Syria has been to provide air support and artillery to target the area of the operation and throw Kurdish YPG fighters into the situation until they take over the territory.

Speaking to Reuters in Raqqa after announcing the redeployment, he said that 700 of the fighters had already moved to Afrin.

Turkish Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hami Aksoy said on March 6 that Colonel Manning had "talked nonsense", and demanded once again that the US put an end to its collaboration with one terror group in order to fight against another one.

"We have clear expectations from the United States".

He added that no one has the right to tell Turkey when to finish the operation in Afrin.

Damascus has condemned the operation as a violation of Syria's sovereignty.
