<p style="text-align: left;">Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan vowed at his ruling Justice and Development Party&amp;rsquo;s (AKP) congress that Turkey would press on with and expand its cross-border military operations, Arab News reported.

Turkey sent troops into northern Syria two years ago to fight against the Kurdish People&rsquo;s Protection Units (YPG).
Turkey accuses the YPG of being the Syrian branch of the Kurdistan Workers&rsquo; Party (PKK), a group blacklisted by Ankara and its Western allies.
The Turkish army has also increased its strikes against PKK rear bases in the north of Iraq in the past few months.
