As for Washington's other major claim: that Iran is supports terrorism via its support for Hezbollah and Hamas (which Western countries, but neither Russia nor China, see as terrorist groups), Tehran has made clear its position that it will support those forces which it believes are engaged in a struggle for national liberation. Ultimately, Sputnik Persian suggested that the US has now returned to the pre-Obama status quo of close ties with its traditional allies Israel and Saudi Arabia, and to a certain extent Turkey. The allied rapprochement between the US and these countries automatically implies a deterioration of relations with Iran, their main enemy. Despite a noticeable about-face turn away from Tehran, it's likely that the White House has yet to fully and clearly formulate its Iran policy. There is little doubt that this will be a tough anti-Iranian policy which may perhaps include the introduction of new sanctions.

Pentagon officials have issued new statements on Turkey's attacks yesterday against Kurdish targets in both Iraq and Syria, saying that they had put US troops in danger by launching the surprise attacks with insufficient advanced notice. The US was already not so keen on Turkey attacking their allies in the fighting against ISIS. Pentagon spokesmen now say they were given less than an hour's notice that the Turkish attacks were coming, not giving them much time to react. At the same time, officials have insisted that no US troops were present at the sites of the strikes, and there were no US casualties reported among the scores of people killed in the attacks. Turkey of course has made clear they intended to attack the Kurds for years, but the lack of specific notice may suggest they didn't trust the US not to warn them. Turkey's attack has provoked a lot of criticism from around the world, with the Russian Foreign Ministry the latest to issue a statement expressing serious concern over the attacks, saying that attacking sovereign states was unacceptable and that attacks on the Kurds were not helpful to the ongoing war against ISIS.

Turkey's massive purge after last year's failed military coup had quieted down a bit in recent months, but seems to be picking up again today, with a major move by the government against members of the national police force who are accused of having ties to exiled cleric Fethullah Gulen. A new statement out of Ankara reported 1,009 police have been detained over 72 provinces in the ongoing operation, with all those detained identified as secret imams within the Gulenist movement. Over 9,100 police were suspended over ties as well. This adds to some 40,000 people arrested nationwide over Gulenist ties, and around 120,000 people who have been fired from various jobs, as the government tries to purge potentially disloyal people from key positions. It is unclear what led to this new push. It may be related to this month's referendum, which is designed to give President Erdogan even more unchecked power, a highly controversial vote which ended in a contested win and charges of fraud from the opposition.

Turkey is accusing the Syrian government of having fired mortar shells against one of their military bases in the southeastern Hatay Province, an attack which coincided with shelling from Kurdish forces against the same part of Turkey. Syria has not confirmed involvement in the strike, but the statement from Turkey's military claimed that the shelling originated from territory that they believe to have been under control of Syrian military forces. It's not clear why the Syrian military would attack a Turkish border post far from any territory the government still controls, but Turkey would clearly be quite eager to make such claims, as it provides a justification for retaliatory strikes, and potentially raids to seize more territory for their rebel allies. Turkey's military also claimed to have responded in kind to the Syrian military, but didn't detail what, exactly, they attacked, and there has yet to be any word out of Syria of anything being hit other than Kurdish territory.
