Turkey warns Kurdish forces to withdraw, ahead of deadline

Turkey's foreign minister has renewed warnings that his country will resume its military offensive in northeast Syria if Kurdish fighters don't vacate the region before the end of a U.S.-brokered cease-fire Tuesday evening.


Speaking in Istanbul Monday, Mevlut Cavusoglu said: "If they don't withdraw, our operation will re-start."


He accused Syrian Kurdish groups of 30 live fire violations of the four-day-old truce, which killed one Turkish soldier. He said Turkey retaliated to these attacks.
