Since 2016, Ankara has launched a trio of successful anti-terror operations across its border in northern Syria to prevent the formation of a terror corridor.
Speaking at Türkiye's southeastern Sanliurfa province near the Syrian border, Recep Tayyip Erdogan says "attacks will not dampen our resolve" and that the security corridor will "definitely" be complete.
No step Türkiye will take is subject to anyone's permission or consent, says country's Communications Director Fahrettin Altun.
As the country marks the sixth anniversary of the cross-border operation, here's a quick summary of the gains Turkish armed forces made against Daesh and the YPG/PKK in northeastern Syria.
Expect more Turkish operations taking place simultaneously in Iraq and Syria.
Ankara is determined to eliminate terror threats emanating from Syria, said Turkey's President Erdogan, after two Turkish special operation police officers were killed and two others wounded in northern Syria.
The Daesh member who was a Kazakh national was nabbed in Turkey's southern province of Kilis, near the border with Syria.
At a joint military drill with Azerbaijani troops, Defence Minister Hulusi Akar said Turkey is also ready to help boost the Iraqi military's effectiveness through sharing its knowledge and experience as a NATO member.
At least six civilians were killed and 25 others wounded in the attack for which no group has claimed immediate responsibility.
Syria's Response Coordination Group says the forced migration gained momentum in Eriha, Jabal Zawiya and Saraqeb regions of Idlib province due to intensified attacks.
The attacks came from two bomb-laden vehicles at a bus station in Al Bab, an area cleared by Turkey of terrorists in 2016.
“We’II move the process which we started with the Euphrates Shield and Olive Branch operations [in northern Syria] forward to a different phase very soon,” Turkey's President Erdogan says.
