Turkish President: US failed to keep promise after offensive in Northern Syria

With tens of thousands of arrests and sackings since the failed coup 12 months ago Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has cemented his grip on power buoyed by an April referendum success

The man, named by the Turkish news agency Demiroren as Muhammed Darwis B, is believed to be a USA citizen of Jordanian descent.

A French foreign ministry source told AFP news agency last week that suspected jihadists were often returned to France from Turkey under a 2014 agreement.

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his USA counterpart Donald Trump are to hold a bilateral meeting at the White House on Wednesday followed by a joint press conference.

But several European countries have resisted Turkey's efforts to send ISIL members back to their countries.

The Turkish offensive prompted concern over the fate of the prisoners, with Turkey's Western allies and the SDF warning it could hinder the fight against Islamic State and aid its resurgence.

Speaking to reporters in Ankara on Tuesday, Erdoğan threatened that Turkey could release all of its jailed foreign militants and send them to Europe.

"You should revise your stance towards Turkey, which at the moment holds so many Isis members in prison and at the same time controls those in Syria". "The Turkish aggression opened the space and provided hope for ISIS members", Kobane told Sky News.

Turkey has lately increased pressure on Europe to take responsibility for the problem.

A military US official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an internal assessment, cautioned that it remains hard based on the aerial footage alone to definitively determine what occurred in two similar incidents along a major Syrian highway in mid-October.

"We recently captured a very important Daesh man in Syria", Soylu said, using the Arabic acronym for ISIL.

Turkey deported citizens of the US, Denmark, and Germany on Monday and announced plans to soon expel seven other German nationals, two Irish citizens, and 11 French nationals. Many countries request passenger lists for both military and commercial flights before a plane is allowed to enter their airspace.

Men suspected of being affiliated with ISIS gather in a prison cell in the northeastern Syrian city of Hasakeh at the end of October. They said the Turkish government had imprisoned more than 80,000 Turkish citizens, closed more than 1,500 nongovernmental organizations on terrorism-related grounds and dismissed or suspended more than 130,000 civil servants from their jobs.

The British woman Tooba Gondal is also believed to be in Turkish custody, having escaped a Kurdish-run detention centre in the chaos caused by Turkey's invasion of Kurdish-held Syria last month.

Some IS members and their relatives were captured in north-eastern Syria in October, when Turkey launched a cross-border operation against the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) there.

The EU's sanction package intends "to sanction individuals or entities responsible for, or involved in, unauthorized drilling activities of hydrocarbons".

Among other tensions between Ankara and Washington are Turkey's purchase of a Russian advanced air defence system as well as Turkish demands for the repatriation of Fethullah Gulen, a US-based Islamic cleric whom Ankara blames for a 2016 coup attempt by a faction in the military.
