After an AFP report claimed that the Turkish military and the YPG reached "a loose agreement" to stop shooting at each other, a top Turkish official told Daily Sabah Tuesday that the Turkish military will hit YPG forces if the terrorist group does not retreat to the east of the Euphrates.

The report said: "Turkish and Kurdish forces in northern Syria have reached a 'loose agreement' to stop fighting each other, a U.S. defense official told AFP on Tuesday."

Speaking to Daily Sabah on the claim, the top Turkish official said that Turkey is determined to fight DAESH and the YPG. "The Turkish military will hit the YPG if it does not move east of the Euphrates," he asserted.
