(Ankara) Operation Euphrates Shield was launched last August by the
Turks in tackle ISIS after they detonated a bomb at a Kurdish wedding inside
Turkey. The thing is whilst the Turks said they were targeting ISIS, they
actually meant the Kurds. In fact there is strong evidence that a large number
of ISIS thugs shaved off their beards and joined the Turkish irregulars .
