Turkey's Syria op risks reviving ISIS - Maas

By launching the operation in northern Syria Turkey risks "further destabilization of the region" and "reinvigorating Islamic State," German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas noted in a statement on Wednesday. The diplomat added that "the offensive could lead to a new humanitarian disaster and a fresh influx of refugees."

"We call on Turkey to end its operation and pursue its security interests in a peaceful way," Maas underlined joining calls and warnings to Turkey to halt the military operation among whose targets are the Kurdistan Workers' Party/Kurdish militia in Syria.

"Operation Peace Spring" was launched earlier today, on the pretext of eliminating the "terror corridor" in Turkey and achieving peace in the region.
