For a while, Turkey was similarly pragmatic in its approach. Tensions have risen further since the U.S. announced the decision to sponsor the creation of a 30,000-strong security border force in Syria, half of which would be recruited from Kurdish-led forces. At the time, around 1,000 YPG fighters wounded in the battle against IS were treated in state-run Turkish hospitals.

Ankara sees no distinction between the YPG/PKK and Daesh terrorist groups, both of whom have carried out deadly attacks on Turkish soil and entered into agreements on several occasions including in Raqqa.
