France 24 Debate: “The Battle for Kobani: Will Turkey Step In?”
SETA Foundation at Washington, DC Research Director Kadir Ustun Joined France 24 Debate to discuss “The Battle for Kobani: Will Turkey Step In?“
Is Turkey pivoting? Speaking near the border with Syria, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned that a ground operation is needed to combat the Islamic State group…and that the border town of Kobani is about to fall. So, whose job is it to stop the jihadists from taking Kobani and consolidating a territory that would stretch from their base in Raqqa all the way to Syria’s largest city of Aleppo?
