Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has previously stated the only worldwide force which legally has been invited to combat ISIS in Syria is Russian Federation, and the other nations involved, such as the United States and Turkey, have essentially invaded.

The conversation came after recent accusations from Erdogan and his deputies that the United States has been arming "terrorists" in Syria in an apparent reference to US aid given to Syrian Kurdish militias who have been battling IS.

Hobbs said he believes that terrorist attacks will continue, for the time being at least, "given that there is no political solution to the Kurdish crisis in sight, and given that the Turkish army is fighting the Islamic state in Syria".

Erdogan also vowed to hit Manbij city, that was liberated from ISIS at the hands of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) last August.

"If you are not supporting us in the most significant operation, then why are you based at the Incirlik airbase?" "Really, the entire world has been made safer by the operations that have been conducted there".

"The United States should not allow this strategic partnership [with Turkey] to be overshadowed by a terrorist organisation", Binali Yıldırım, the Turkish prime minister, said in a speech in parliament.

Nadal will now turn his attention to the Brisbane International , where he will be joined by Milos Raonic in the men's singles. The reigning champion edged a closely-fought first set, finally breaking Goffin when it mattered and clinching the set 6-4.

It's not an unfamiliar position for the country, but there are now new threats that add to the longstanding reasons for Turkey's particular position in the crosshairs.

Turkey, however, considers the YPG to be affiliated with the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), who have fought a three-decade insurgency inside Turkey's borders.

Twenty-two Daesh fighters have been killed in northern Syrian cities of Al-Bab, Bzagah and Tadif in the last 24 hours as part of the ongoing Operation Euphrates Shield, according to a Turkish military source on Monday.

"We are working every day, including today, with all of our partners in Iraq and Syria with regard to the counter-ISIL effort", Mr. Cook said Tuesday.

Erdogan and other Turkish officials have charged that the U.S.is supplying weapons to the YPG.
