Turkey only NATO country to hold battle against Daesh08 October 2019

Turkish National Defense Ministry says Turkey has suffered most from Daesh's bloody attacks

Turkey's National Defense Ministry on Tuesday stated that Turkey was the only NATO country to fight against the DAESH terrorist organization. 

The ministry stated on twitter that Turkey has suffered the most from Daesh's bloody attacks and has combated the organization within and outside the borders.

The statement added that Turkish Armed Forces will continue its fight against Daesh at east of Euphrates as well.

The statement also noted that during Euphrates Shield operations Turkish Armed Forces dealt a major blow to Daesh in terms of military and ideology by capturing Dabiq in northern Syria which is shrine to the terrorists.

In the last two years, Turkey’s Euphrates Shield and Olive Branch operations liberated the region from YPG/PKK and Daesh terrorists, allowing hundreds of thousands of displaced civilians to return to their homes.

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the European Union -- has waged a terror campaign against Turkey for more than 30 years, resulting in the deaths of nearly 40,000 people, including women, children and infants.

Syria has only just begun to emerge from a devastating conflict that began in 2011 when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on demonstrators with unexpected ferocity.
