White House: Turkish push complicates front against ISIS

WASHINGTON- The Obama administration said on Monday it opposes Turkey's push into areas in northern Syria controlled by a Syrian opposition group that Washington has supported.


Turkish-backed forces pushed deeper into Syria on Monday into areas controlled by fighters aligned to the Syrian Democratic Forces, or SDF. "Further action against the SDF would complicate efforts to have that united front against ISIL that we want," Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes told reporters using an acronym for ISIS.
