"That's one significant event there", the official said.
Turkey's operation has also allowed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to send his forces to an area that had been beyond his control for years in the more than eight-year-old Syrian war.
"Operation Peace Spring represents a second chance to help Turkey end proxy wars in Syria and restore peace and stability to the region. the European Union-and the world-should support what Turkey is trying to do", Erdogan said. Turkish President Erdogan even openly suggested that Washington was only seeking to protect their Kurdish "terrorist group", and announced that Turkey was all set and ready to go in alone to establish the so-called "safe zone".
The official spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive planning for a US pullout amid heavy fighting between Turkish and Syrian Kurdish forces.
The White House announced a week ago that USA forces in northeast Syria would move aside and clear the way for an expected Turkish assault, essentially abandoning the Kurds who fought alongside American forces against Islamic State militants.

Asked on Sky News if Turkey's military was willing to fight Assad's army, Vice President Fuat Oktay said, "We hope it's not going to happen, but again we are determined to get control over Manbij".
The president's abrupt decision this month to withdraw United States forces from northeast Syria left the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) at the mercy of Turkish troops and their Syrian proxies.
The military outpost near Tel Arqam is occupied by US-led coalition forces, who intervened in the conflict in breach of Syria's sovereignty more than five years ago, on the pretext of battling the Islamic State terrorist group.
