Turkey treats Kurdish fighters as terrorists and to ward them off, they recently agreed on a deal with Russian President Vladimir Putin, aimed at keeping Kurdish fighters away from Syria’s borders with Turkey. The deal comes at a time when there is a pause in the Turkish offensive after a fragile ceasefire was agreed with the intervention by the US. According to the deal, Syrian and Russian forces will immediately oversee a withdrawal of Kurdish forces and set out plans for joint Turkish-Russian patrols along the border next week.

A ceasefire mediated by the US was set to expire on Tuesday evening, following which Ankara had issued a fresh threat of re-launching its offensive against the Kurdish fighters. It said there was “no need” for ceasefire now.

Amidst this worsening situation, the Indian government had preemptively issued a travel advisory for its citizens to either avoid travelling to Turkey or exercise extreme caution while travelling to the country engaged in war.
