ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan demanded on Monday that Syrian government forces in northwest Syria withdraw to lines determined by Turkey, adding that their losses in attacks by Turkey and rebel forces were just beginning.

“If they do not withdraw to the lines Turkey has determined as soon as possible, they will not have a head left on their shoulders,” Erdogan said in a speech in Ankara.
