There are still terrorists in the planned safe zone in northern Syria, Turkish president said on Tuesday.

"We know that there are still terrorists in the planned safe zone. These areas have not been cleared of terrorists yet," Recep Tayyip Erdogan told his ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party's parliamentary group.

Erdogan noted that the terrorists beyond the safe zone borders were organizing attacks to Turkish security forces.

"We will not be an onlooker to this situation. We will do what is necessary as we did before.

"Turkey will continue its fight until the last terrorist is neutralized in Turkey, Syria and Iraq," Erdogan said.

Syria's Ras al-Ayn and Tal Abyad were cleared of terrorists during Turkeys Operation Peace Spring -- launched on Oct. 9 to eliminate terrorists from northern Syria east of the Euphrates River in order to secure Turkeys borders, aid in the safe return of Syrian refugees and ensure Syrias territorial integrity.

Ankara wants YPG/PKK terrorists to withdraw from the region so that a safe zone can be created to pave the way for the safe return of some two million refugees.
