Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has launched a long-threatened ground offensive against Kurdish forces in northern Syria. Could the push, as critics say, massively destabilise the region? Our guests: Daniel Gerlach (Zenith), Malte Lehming (Tagesspiegel), Seda Serdar (DW)
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.”
