Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United States will launch an operation against the Daesh terrorists in Mosul and Raqqa, aiming at clearing the Daesh terrorists from northern Syria; Turkey and NATO forces will hit the terrorist targets while Saudi Arabia and Qatar will provide weapon support to the operation.

The details of the operation became definite during the G20 Summit, after Turkey's success in the Euphrates Shield Operation was clearly understood and approved by the participant countries.

The countries were convinced that Daesh will be swept from Syria by simultaneously deploying a ground offensive and air operation, as executed in the Euphrates Shield Operation.



The operation will be conducted after next week's Eid al-Adha holiday; however, all the final details will be determined during the United Nations (UN) Summit to be held in New York between September 13 and 20.

The land force will consist of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and its affiliated groups,while Turkish and NATO warplanes will be pounding the terrorist targets in the two cities.

However the fate of the Bashar al-Assad regime couldn't be clarified after the country is cleared from the terrorists.

Previously, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said that there isn't any possibility to take a step backward with terror groups like Daesh, PKK, PYD and YPG, to prevent the formation of these groups in Syria.

The Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) continue to support the Free Syrian Army (FSA) soldiers with the "Euphrates Shield" operation, aiming at clearing northern Syria from all terrorist elements since August 24.

The civil war, which is expected to be ended soon, left more than 250,000 people killed, according to United Nations (UN) figures, while 6.5 million Syrians were evacuated to the safe zone and 5 million emigrated.
