We are officially at war, says Turkey Minister

<p style="text-align:left">Turkey&amp;rsquo;s Minister of Energy Berat Albayrak told that in recent months Turkey&amp;rsquo;s de facto war turned into an official war.

During a speech in Istanbul on Sunday, Albayrak claime that Turkey was not only fighting against the Kurdistan Workers&rsquo; Party, and its extensions in Syria, but also against countries providing the Kurdish militia military equipment, AHaber reported.
Turkey launched a military incursion in Syria in Jan. 20 and in March seized the Afrin city centre, which was under the control of the pro-Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (PYD) and People's Protections Units (YPG).
&ldquo;We are passing through historic days. For the last 15 years, we are facing a de facto war, a struggle. In this process, which as you know has turned in recent months from a de facto situation to an official war, we are fighting against in Afrin not only a handful members of a terrorist organisation. As Turkey, are we fighting only against PKK/PYD/YPG? We are fighting against some certain countries that back them [Kurdish forces], that provide weapons, rifles, rocket launchers, rockets to them, the tunnels they built by using their equipment,&rdquo; said Albayrak.
