US national security adviser worried Turkey's mercenaries commit war crimes in north Syria

As Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan prepares to visit Washington on Wednesday, President Trump's national security adviser said he was "deeply concerned" about reports of war crimes in Syria following Turkey's attack on northern and eastern Syria.

 National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien told CBS: "We are very concerned about these issues, war crimes cases. We are watching them. We are watching it very closely. There is no place for genocide, ethnic cleansing and war crimes in the 21st century. The United States will not We stand idly, and we have made it clear to the Turks. "

O'Brien said he had seen "very disturbing" reports since the Turkish attack.

"There is no place in NATO for the S-400 systems," O'Brien said in the interview. "There is no place in NATO for important Russian military purchases. This is a message that the president will tell him very clearly when he is here."

He added: "Turkey will feel the impact of these sanctions," referring to the measures imposed under the law (confronting the enemies of America through the Penal Code), which he said Congress would pass by an overwhelming majority with the consent of members of the two parties.
