Turkey plans to pursue targets in northern Syria after it completes a cross-border operation against outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants in Iraq, a senior official said on Tuesday, after a deadly weekend bomb in Istanbul.


Threats posed by Kurdish militants or IS on Turkey are unacceptable, the official said, adding that Ankara will clear threats along its southern border “one way or another.”


“Syria is a national security problem for Turkey. There is work being done on this already,” the official said, declining to be named as they were not authorised to speak.
