Turkiye warned allied countries, said Turkish National Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, APA's correspondent in Istanbul reports.

He noted that allied countries give their flags and uniforms to terrorists to hide their identity.

Besides, the minister called on the allies to remove the terrorists from their regions and cut off all ties with them.

Akar said that the United States has called on Turkiye to reconsider the on-ground operation it can carry out in northern Syria.

"We explained our sensitivity, we wanted to keep the promises," he said, saying that they responded to the US request.
