Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu called on Kurds to leave the airport in Syria - otherwise it will be annihilated.

ANKARA (Sputnik) – Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has again put forward an ultimatum against the self-defense forces of Syrian Kurds, demanding they abandon the Minneh Airport in northern Syria near the Turkish border or it would destroy the facilities.

“We will not allow the city of Azaz to fall…[The Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party] must leave the airport, and if they don’t then it will be brought to complete ruin,” Davutoglu told journalists on a flight to Ukraine.
