Turkey ends Euphrates Shield military campaign in Syria

Turkey ends Euphrates Shield military campaign in Syria

Turkey says it has “successfully” ended its seven-month Euphrates Shield military campaign in northern Syria. But Prime Minister Binali Yildirim did not rule out new military operations and did not say whether Turkish troops would now leave Syria.

Turkey launched the offensive last August to push Islamic State militants away from its border and also to stop the advance of local Kurdish fighters. On Thursday, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is due to visit Turkey(BBC,2017).
