SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Turkey will attack militants with tanks and soldiers soon, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday, signaling a possible ground offensive against the Kurdish groups in northern Syria. 

“We have been bearing down on terrorists for a few days with our planes, cannons, and guns,” Erdogan said in a speech in northeastern Turkey. “God willing, we will root out all of them as soon as possible, together with our tanks, our soldiers.”

He said previously that operations would not be limited to an air campaign and may involve ground forces. Turkey has mounted several major military operations against the Syrian Kurdish YPG militants in the country.

The YPG-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said 15 civilians and fighters were killed in Turkish strikes in recent days.
