Alwaght- Turkey denounced secret deal between US-Baked Kurdish militants and ISIS terrorists in Syria's Raqqa and Washington's stance towards it as “extremely grave and eye-opening revelation”.

Turkey's Foreign Ministry in a statement issued on Tuesday said Ankara was appalled by a revelation that the US-allied Kurdish Militants, so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), has made a clandestine agreement with ISIS, letting the terrorist group to evacuate thousands of its fighters from Raqqa.

On Sunday, an Investigation by the BBC revealed that some 4000 ISIS terrorists, including hundreds of foreign nationals, have been allowed by Washington-backed SDF militants to leave the Syrian city as the Kurdish fighters supported by US-led coalition's airstrikes launched an operation to retake the Raqqa in October.

A convoy of almost 50 trucks, 13 buses and more than 100 ISIS vehicles left the bombed out Raqqa on October 12, "under the gaze of the US and British-led coalition and Kurdish-led forces who control the city," BBC reported.

In the wake of BBC report, Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon and of the spokespersons of the so-called International Coalition Against ISIS defended the SDF deal to allow 4,000 ISIS terrorists to escape Raqqa, saying they defend it as part of a “local solution to a local issue" and consequently "respect" it.

US authorities reaction to the report made Turkish leaders Irate, with the country's foreign Ministry's statement reading, “Seeing that statements from the spokespeople of the international coalition against Islamic State (ISIS) and the US Department of Defense have not denied the existence of the given agreement, but to the contrary said they ‘respected’ it is appalling,”  

“The agreement in question has become an example that if a battle is carried out with a terrorist organization (US-Backed SDF), those terrorist organizations will eventually opt to cooperate with each other,” it said.

Turkey considers Syrian Democratic Forces, named by Turkey as YPG, as an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which has fought a decades-long insurgency in Turkey and is designated a terrorist group by Ankara, the United States and European Union.

“As we have emphasized on every occasion, the purpose of the PKK/YPG in Syria is not to fight against Daesh but to create illegitimate faits-accomplis on the ground, to occupy territories and to alter their demographic structures,” Turkey's foreign ministry's statement read.
