President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan reminded that his country would not stop the attack on Syria until Kurdish forces leave Northern Syria. The state leader told this to journalists on Friday, November 8, as Aljazeera reports. 

After seizing a 120-km (75-mile) swathe of land along the border, Turkey struck deals with the United States and Russia to keep the YPG, which Ankara labels as "terrorists" due to its links with the outlawed Turkey-based PKK (Kurdistan Workers' Party), out of that area.

"We will not ease up until every last terrorist leaves the region," Erdogan said, referring to the YPG, the main component of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Erdogan also stated that for termination of the conflict, other states should also pull out of Syria. 

As it was reported earlier, Turkey departed Syrian refugees from its territories by force, according to the Amnesty Human Rights company. Amnesty International interviewed 28 refugees who told that Turkish police beat and  threatened them and obliged to sign documents, which stated that they wanted to come back to Syria.
