The Turkish President Erdogan during a press conference in Ankara, said it was clear that U.S.-led coalition forces have given support to terrorist groups, including the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and Syrian Kurdish forces. The evidence would be clear thanks to pictures, photos and videos. The U.S State Department rejected as “ludicrous” the accusations by Erdoğan that the U.S.-led coalition supported ISIL, underlining instead the support given to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). Erdoğan also accused the coalition forces of not supporting Turkey in its campaign to liberate northern Syria town of al-Bab from ISIL militants. According to him they would not keep their promises.
