The international coalition against DAESH, which supported the moderate opposition Free Syrian Army (FSA) solely with airstrikes, now, thanks to Turkey, introduced boots on the ground.

  • WHY DOESN’T WEST LIKE ERDOĞAN?

    Daily Sabah-18.08.2016-Merve Şebnem Oruç The West's obsession with Erdoğan is the greatest obstacle preventing them from understanding what is happening in Turkey It has been a month since the failed coup attempt in Turkey, and the rift between the U.S. and Turkey shows not much progress of coming to an end.

Foreign media would be right to ask how on earth the military of a NATO-member country could imagine that

  • JULY 15 WAS AN INTERNATIONALLY SPONSORED FETO
