“If this agreement endures, so do we. Otherwise, we will resume the offensive the minute after the 120-hour deadline expires and continue to crush the terrorist's heads,” he said during a rally in the city of Kayseri.

This is Erdogan's second warning in less than two days about a possible resumption of hostilities if the Kurds do not leave the “safe zone” that Ankara has drawn: 440 kilometers along the Syrioturian border, and 32 kilometers in the Syria interior.
