After Ankara bombing on 17 February that left 28 people dead, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed huge rage over the incident and threatened military intervention in Syria in retaliation for the attack even announced that the Turkey can ban its air base which is being used by Americans.


In wake of the Russian bombings in Syria on secret positions of militants, clash reaches on peak as Moscow determined to remove the complete hold Islamist fighters from the Syria and hence helping its army to make it as soon as possible.


Nonetheless, US air strikes supporting Syrian Kurds who are on their way to hit Islamic State and non-ISIS supply lines in the same area, while on the other side, Syrian army alongside Russian bombers is advancing north of Aleppo to stop the Syrian armed opposition from the Turkish border.

In wake of the rage of Turkish authorities, United States President Barack Obama discussed the issue via telephonic conversation that believed to be one hour and 20 minutes long with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, requested to control his behavior.

As we all have seen that Saudi Arabia and Turkish authorities are always emphasizing that US launch its ground offensive in Syria against the Islamic State’s militants whereas not in favor to establish a large-scale military intervention on their own.

While if we take a view of Turkish and Saudi policy which is full of threats and bombast, hence the military actions cannot be stopped as these can show lethal effects in the region.

However, United States believes that if Turkish military takes action so it would be directly against the People’s Protection Units (YPG) and Syrian Kurds and these both are helping US-led campaign against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in Syria.
