U.S. – Turkey agrees to a plan on ISIS-free zone on Syrian border
July 28 , 2015
July 27, 2015 - In a landmark deal, Turkey and the U.S. have agreed on a plan to push out the ISIS from a 60-mile strip of land that would constitute an ISIS-free zone on the Turkey-Syria border. As per media reports, the agreement comes after violence linked to the Syria war prompted the government of Turkey to launch air strikes on ISIS targets and also to allow a coalition led by the U.S. to use its air bases against the ISIS. However, it is unclear how the safe haven will be guarded.
