The uncontrollable rising and brutality of ISIL (The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) in the Middle East caused many people to die and to increase the number of the persons in need of helping. Many states in the world have started to take some precautions against these terrorist groups and their actions, especially in Iraq and Syria where the riot and brutality emerged first.
Being at the edge of the circle of firing, Turkey takes part in actively to stop all kinds of terrorism which has been funded for years since its birth there by the external powers. Unlike the ISIL, there is another terrorist group which is eager to divide the Republic of Turkey called Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK) in northern Iraq. Despite the country or officials couldn’t make a huge progress in ending these outlawed actions, Turkey has determined to keep them under pressure and control thanks to multinational coalition which plays a critical role in sharing the rapid intelligence by using the data and signals.
The officials say the operations on the front, against PKK in Iraq and in Turkey, are a result of the group’s escalating attacks on Turkish targets. The PKK and the Turkish state were engaged in a war for almost 30 years until a 2013 ceasefire was declared as the two sides were engaged in peace talks. The ceasefire largely held until the recent developments and the talks practically collapsed. The US and the EU considers the group a "terrorist" organisation.
"It is not possible for us to continue the peace process with those who threaten our national unity and brotherhood," Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said, after the beginning of Turkish air strikes.
Representatives from Russia, Turkey and Iran kicked off a technical meeting in Kazakhstan's capital Astana to discuss details of the implementation of the Syrian ceasefire agreement, on the date of 6th of February, 2017. In spite of all these initiatives, unfortunately, the conflicts between the parties continued as it was before.
Furthermore, we think that a military intervention against the terrorist groups is one of most effective way of combatting with the outlawed armed militants. So, the Turkish army launched a campaign inside Syria on August 24, codenamed Euphrates Shield, to clean its border from ISIL fighters and stop the advance of Kurdish militia, seen by Turkey as a "terrorist" hostile force.
The officials and Turkish government underline the following issues related to the conflicts;
- To deport the separatist terrorist organization, PKK
- To create more powerful and advanced coalition collaboration against ISIL
- Never to stop the peace talks between the parties and to show great care to the Astana Summits
- To form a protected area where no armed power can interfere up to win a victory
