Germany Bans Weapons Sales To Turkey

Intro

Germany has decided to stop its sales of weapons to Turkey over its operation against Kurdish militias in northern Syria, its foreign minister was quoted as saying on Saturday.

Germany, along with many of its allies, has frowned against the offensive that Ankara says is targing the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) militia, a force that has played a key role against the Islamic State group in Syria.

“In the context of the Turkish military offensive in northeastern Syria, the government will not issue any new permits for any military equipment that could be used in Syria by Turkey,” Maas was quoted as telling the Sunday edition of Bild.
