Turkey said Saturday it would retaliate to any "terrorist" threat emanating from Syria or any other country.
Turkey will take all necessary measures to protect its national security and safety of its borders, Presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said in a press statement.
"Any threat emanating from Syria or any other country against Turkey and could be plotted by so-called Islamic State (IS) or PKK or the Kurdish-Syrian forces or any terrorist group, will trigger Turkey's immediate retaliation," he added.
His comments followed the Turkish army's deployment at the border near the city of Afrin, which was under the Kurdish-Syrian forces' control.
Turkish artillery destroyed positions of the Syrian Kurdish democratic union after the latter opened fire at the Free Syrian Army, which is supported by the Turkish forces in northern Syria.
