THE DAILYSTAR: U.S. urges halt to Turkish, Kurdish clashes in Syria's north

ANKARA: The U.S. Monday urged Turkish troops and Kurdish forces in northern Syria to halt their fighting, saying it hinders efforts to defeat Daesh (ISIS). But Turkey's president vowed to press ahead with the military operation until Daesh and Kurdish Syrian fighters no longer pose a security threat to Ankara.

It was the first U.S. criticism of its NATO ally since it launched a U.S.-backed incursion into northern Syria to help Syrian rebels seize the town of Jarablus from Daesh.

They have been clashing with Kurdish Syrian forces around the town to try to halt their advance.

The battle now pits Turkey against the Kurdish-led force known as the Syria Democratic Forces -- a U.S.-backed proxy that is the most effective ground force battling Daesh militants in Syria's 5-year-old civil war. It puts Washington in the difficult spot of having to choose between two allies, and it is likely to divert resources from the fight against Daesh.
