Erdogan claims that Obama supplied weapons went to Islamic State

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has alleged that weapons supplied to the Syrian Kurdish Peoples Protection Units (YPG) in Syria have been used against Turkish civilians. He added that he would talk to US President Barack Obama about it on Friday.“I will tell him, ‘Look at how and where these weapons you provided were fired’,” he told reporters in Istanbul on Friday according to Reuters.“Month ago in my meeting with him I told him the U.S. was supplying weapons. Three planeloads arrived, half of them ended up in the hands of Daesh [Islamic State], and half of them in the hands of the PYD [Syrian Democratic Union Party],” he went on to allege.“Against whom were these weapons used?” he asked before answering, “They were used against civilians there and caused there deaths.”
