    The Turkish operation to liberate the Syrian border town of Jarablus from Daesh extremists will become a turning point in the international fight against the group, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Wednesday.

    ANKARA (Sputnik) – The Turkish armed forces, backed by the US-led coalition aircraft, launched a campaign dubbed "Euphrates Shield" to clear Jarablus of extremist militants in the early hours of Wednesday.

    He reiterated Ankara’s calls for the Syrian Kurdish forces to leave the area west of Euphrates, warning that otherwise the Turkish forces "will take the necessary measures."

    Daesh is a terrorist organization outlawed in numerous countries worldwide, including Russia.
