Seda Serdar is DW Foreign Policy Editor and says: “A military operation in Syria won't solve Erdogan's problems at home." 



Malte Lehming, Contributing Editor at the Berlin daily Tagesspiegel, says: “The Middle East is facing a further escalation. The losers are the Kurds and Donald Trump.” 



Daniel Gerlach, Editor-in-Chief of the Middle East magazine Zenith, says: “Erdogan has already achieved his political goal. But militarily, this offensive is very dangerous for Turkey.”
