Turkish civilians on Syria border back Erdogan's offensive
Issued on: Modified:
While the international community has criticised Turkey's offensive in northeast Syria, Turkish civilians along the border are broadly supportive of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's campaign against the Kurdish YPG militia in Syria. FRANCE 24's Amar al Hameedwi, Karim Hakiki and Clovis Casali sent this report from the Turkish border town of Akcakale.
Mehmet Erzak’s home was one of ten hit by Kurdish fire in Akcakale, but his support for the offensive is undiminished.
“We don’t care about this house, I’d sacrifice 1,000 more houses for our President Erdogan,” he says.
