Turkey has asked the coalition led by the US to start a ground operation in Syria


Turkey is asking its coalition partners, including the U.S., to participate in a joint ground operation in Syria to put an end to a five-year civil war in the country. About it reports Reuters, citing an unnamed Turkish official.

According to him, it is impossible to end the Syrian conflict without a ground operation, but Ankara will not take such action alone.

“Turkey begins ground operation unilaterally. We ask the coalition partners that a ground operation had taken place. We discuss this with our allies,” the official said at a briefing in Istanbul.

“We want [to spend] a ground operation. If we come to an agreement, Turkey will take part in it. Without such an operation to end the war impossible,” he added.
