Turkey's President Tayyip Erodgan has angrily rejected international criticism of the country's attack on a Kurdish militia in Syria.
It's the second day of an operation that world powers fear could further destabilize a region in turmoil.
(SOUNDBITE) (Turkish) TURKISH PRESIDENT, TAYYIP ERDOGAN, SAYING: "Hey European Union, pull yourself together.
I say it again.
If you try to label this operation as an invasion, it's very simple, we will open the gates and send 3.6 million refugees your way...Saudi Arabia should look into the mirror.
Who brought Yemen to this state?
Look at its current condition.
Did tens of thousands of people not die in Yemen?
Hey Saudi Arabia, give account for this first....You cannot comment on our move for the unity and solidarity of Syria....Egypt, you can't talk at all.
You are a country with a democracy killer." Erdogan says since the beginning of the operation, that they're calling Peace Spring, 109 terrorists have been killed- While rights groups are raising concerns that civilians are being caught in the crossfire.
