(Worthy News) - A large-scale Turkish invasion of northern Syria appears to be imminent after the deadline to jointly establish a "safe zone" in the region with the United States by the end of September passed without a resolution between the two countries.
Turkey and the US reached a preliminary agreement in August to establish a 300 mile-long buffer zone in northern Syria. Since then the US and Turkey have since conducted a series of joint ground and air patrols on the Syrian side of the border, but the NATO allies have so far failed to agree on the depth of the security zone and who should control it.
Erdogan previously said that if Turkey's demands regarding the border zone were not met by the last week of September he would invade Syria. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
