On Tuesday, Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has taken an oath not to allow any ISIS fighters to escape Northeastern Syria, reads an editorial published, followed by fears from Western countries over its attacks in the region.
President Erdogan wrote in The Wall Street Journal, “We will ensure that no ISIS (Islamic State) fighters leave Northeastern Syria.”
He continued that Western nations were feigned to worry that Turkey is operating against Kurdish Militants that risked a mass escape of jihadists.
The Turkey President wrote, “The same countries that lecture Turkey on the virtues of combating ISIS today, failed to stem the influx of foreign terrorist fighters in 2014 and 2015.”
On Monday, America has slapped sanctions on Turkey as it urged an end to the military operation, accused its NATO partner of putting civilians at risk and permitting the release of extremists.
Kurdish Authorities have also claimed that the Turkish hits difficult to maintain security at their detention centers.
It continued that around 800 ISIS family members have escaped a camp at Ain Issa, and five jihadists broke out of prison.
Turkey alleged that the Kurdish forces have set free detainees deliberately “to fuel chaos in the area.” Some relatives of ISIS family members have also made similar claims to sources.
Ankara has taken oath to take control of all detention centres in its operational region.
“We are prepared to cooperate with source countries and international organizations on the rehabilitation of foreign terrorist fighters’ spouses and children,” President Erdogan added in the editorial.
