Turkey Lacks Coherent Strategy on Syria

A lawmaker said Turkey's ongoing operation against Kurds in Syria's Afrin region shows Ankara does not have a consistent strategy toward Syria.
"Turkey cannot claim that it supports Syria and at the same time kills its Kurdish population," Abolfazl Aboutorabi said, warning that "[Turkish President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan is struggling in a quagmire that he might find no way to get out."
Criticizing Turkey for its decisions which sometimes are in favor of the Syrian government and at times are against it, the lawmaker said, "At the start of the Syrian war, Turkey opted to follow the US foreign policies.
