Trump calls Turkey assault on Syria a 'bad idea' as Kurds report civilian deaths

•, By Greg Norman

His comments come hours after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the launch of Operation Peace Spring -- a mission that will "neutralize terror threats against Turkey and lead to the establishment of a safe zone, facilitating the return of Syrian refugees to their homes."

Trump was heavily criticized throughout the week following his decision Sunday to pull American troops out of northern Syria, leaving the Kurdish forces -- who have been longtime U.S. allies in the fight against ISIS in Syria -- in peril. Ankara views the Syrian Kurdish forces as terrorists allied with a Kurdish insurgency within Turkey.
