ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey will destroy militants east of the Euphrates River in northern Syria, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday, adding that intervention there had begun and more extensive operations will be launched soon.

Erdogan made the comments in a speech to members of his AK Party, two days after state-owned Anadolu news agency said Turkish forces had bombarded Syrian Kurdish YPG militia positions on the eastern banks of the Euphrates.
