Pentagon 'strongly' encourages Turkey to 'discontinue' actions in NE Syria

The Pentagon blasted Turkey’s incursion into northeastern Syria Friday, saying it risked further destabilization of the region and accusing Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of an “impulsive” move damaging relations between Washington and Ankara. In the strongest US statement yet against the attack launched on Wednesday, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper warned of “serious consequences” for Ankara if it does not halt the assault on Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces positions in the area.
