  • U.S.-Turkey relations deteriorate due to new travel directives

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan signalled a possible military operation on Syria's Afrin, Manbij "if terroristst do not pull out in one week" on January 13.

The two countries have also fallen out over the US's refusal to extradite US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, who Turkey holds responsible for the 2016 coup attempt, and U.S. military support for Kurdish rebels in Syria which Ankara considers a terrorist group.

Turkish troops entered Idlib three months ago after an agreement with Russian Federation and Iran for the three countries to try to reduce fighting between pro-Syrian government forces and rebel fighters in the largest remaining insurgent-held part of Syria.

The Kurdish YPG militia said Turkish forces stationed in Syria shelled several Kurdish villages in the Afrin region on Saturday, without causing casualties.

Erdogan said this military intervention had prevented the Kurdish forces from creating a "terror corridor" and promised to crush any new Kurdish insurgencies.

"We are destroying the western wing of this corridor with the Idlib operation", Erdogan said on Saturday.

In 2016, Turkey sent in troops and allied Syrian rebel fighters into northern Syria as part of the Euphrates Shield operation.

"With the Euphrates Shield operation we cut the terror corridor right in the middle".

He also said Turkey could drive YPG forces out of Manbij.

Turkey has warned its citizens against travel to the United States, saying Turks face the risk of arbitrary arrest and should take precautions if they do decide to travel.

Turkey has been wary of the advance of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces in northern Syria against IS.

Earlier this month, a USA jury found a Turkish banker guilty of helping Iran evade US sanctions in a case which has strained diplomatic relations between the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and which Turkey has dismissed as politically motivated.

Relations between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies have become increasingly strained over a number of issues, including Turkey 's detention of two Turkish employees of United States diplomatic missions in the country. "We know they sent 2,000 planes full of weapons".
