France Rules Out Military Intervention in Northern Syria

Turkey: French terrorist mediation offer 'unacceptable'

Turkey has advised France against strengthening its military power in Syria as it would be considered an equivalent of an invasion.

Macron met an SDF delegation on Thursday and gave assurances of French support to stabilise northern Syria.

Manbij, in northern Syria, has recently become another major point of disagreement between the USA and its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally, Turkey, over the presence of the Kurdish militant group People's Protection Units, also known as the YPG.

The United States has 2,000 troops in SDF-held territory, and France also has some troops there as part of the coalition.

According to the General Staff, Operation Olive Branch aims to establish security and stability along Turkey's borders and the region as well as protect Syrians from terrorist cruelty and oppression.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan angrily refused, accusing Macron on Friday of overstepping "his limits" and going "over his head". Turkish forces are now conducting a military operation in north-western Syria, targeting Kurdish militias while Turkish officials repeatedly threatened to move further east along the border.

Will Census Ask About Citizenship for the First Time Since 1950?
The Census Bureau conducts a separate detailed survey of a sample of US households that includes questions about citizenship. Tony Vargas, who represents South Omaha, said adding the question would build distrust in immigrant communities.

She told the journalist the Turkish operation has never affected the village and only the hilltops behind it, adding that Turkish soldiers have already assured villagers that they will not be harmed and they are only here for observation purposes.

The remarks posted on his official Twitter account also warned that those supporting terrorism "will become a target of Turkey" and that he hoped that France would not take "such an irrational step." . Such speculation was fueled by President Donald Trump somewhat surprisingly declaring on Thursday that American forces will be "coming out of Syria like very soon".

Macron said he hoped this could be set up with help from Paris and the worldwide community.

The Turkish leader said Macron made "bizarre" comments during a phone conversation last week that forced Erdogan to raise his voice and respond with a "high frequency".

"We have no need for mediation". "It is not anyone's place to portray our armed forces as something we do not find acceptable".
