Asked to comment on the reports, Erdogan said: "Whether they are stuck there at the border it doesn't concern us".

A recurring theme in the impeachment interviews has been confusion and worry at Trump's chaotic foreign policy, and nowhere is that more evident than with Erdoğan, who has appeared to bend Trump into making favorable pronouncements at multiple junctures. "The Turkish aggression opened the space and provided hope for ISIS members", Kobane told Sky News.

Turkey's offensive was facilitated by President Donald Trump, who abruptly ordered the withdrawal of US troops stationed alongside SDF forces.

Pointing to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's domestic policy imperatives, Pierini added: "We should not forget that this whole operation had no immediate military reason to happen now; it's essentially linked to a degraded situation for the president of Turkey, politically speaking".

Since the incursion, Turkey is also engaged in a push to deport foreign IS members who are held in Turkish prisons or in Syria.

Many of those held are foreign fighters.

Yet despite repeated threats over a host of Turkish actions in recent years, Erdogan continues to run roughshod over United States interests and any semblance of democracy at home.

Trump has shown little concern.

"Jihadists and their families are regularly sent back to France and arrested as they leave the airplane".

Kobani told Sky News that a "spectacular" attack like the 2015 Paris shootings was "possible". Kobane said that the SDF could not foretell what will happen to these prisoners. "Let someone else fight over this long-bloodstained sand (Syria)", he said at a White House news briefing.

In Germany, officials have confirmed legal proceedings involving 10 German nationals in Turkey - three men, five women and two children - whom Ankara plans to deport.

"Yes. It's a big allegation and there's evidence of it". He suggested Turkey has also supported fighters from Al-Qaeda and its Syrian affiliate the Al-Nusra Front.

Separately, the US House of Representatives last month passed a sanctions package to punish Turkey over its Syria operation - the bill still needs to pass the Senate.

The Syrian Kurdish fighters, which have been critical in a US-led campaign to defeat Islamic State extremists, have been another source of tension between Ankara and Washington. "There must be real worldwide solidarity", he said. "We don't know how.but they promised", he said.

Kobani is wanted by Turkey.

General Kobane is wanted by Istanbul for membership of the Kurdish People's Protection Unit (YPG), which is affiliated with a prohibited organisation in Turkey called the Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK).

Turkey has been publicizing its efforts to catch IS members, following criticism that its recent military offensive to drive Syrian Kurdish fighters from northeast Syria would lead to an IS resurgence.

Kobani told Sky News that erratic USA policies have put him and the SDF in a hard position. "America does not have a clear aim", he said.

Germany and the Netherlands have agreed to take ISIL terrorists back into their home countries, Turkey's interior minister said on November 13.
