"It is an extremely grave and eye-opening revelation that the so-called "Syrian Democratic Forces" dominated by PYD/YPG, brokered a deal with the terrorist organization Daesh to evacuate a large number of terrorists from Raqqa while the operation to clear Daesh from Raqqa was already underway", the statement read.

"Seeing that statements from the spokespeople of the global coalition against Islamic State and the U.S. Department of Defence have not denied the existence of the given agreement, but to the contrary said they "respected" it is appalling", Turkey's Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

"The deal sets a new example of the fact that fighting one terrorist organization with another would eventually result in these terrorist organizations colluding with each other", it said.

On Tuesday, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım slammed the US for defending the deal.

Eriksen hat-trick leads Denmark to Russian Federation 2018
Ireland were well beaten at home to Denmark on Tuesday night, going down 5-1 to leave their World Cup hopes lying in tatters. The hat trick brought Eriksen's total in this World Cup qualifying campaign to 11.

Ankara has been infuriated with Washington over its support of the YPG militia, seen by Turks as an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which has fought a decades-long insurgency in Turkey and is designated a terrorist group by Ankara, the United States and European Union.

The report said Daesh also withdrew at least 10 vehicles loaded with arms and ammunition and the fighters included foreigners alongside Iraqis and Syrians.

Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon earlier Tuesday defended a PKK/PYD deal to allow hundreds of Daesh terrorists to escape Raqqa, which he defined as part of a "local solution to a local issue", namely the siege of Daesh's de facto capital in Syria.

"Those Daesh members, who were freed with their weapons, will be able to cause the killing of innocent people, notably in Turkey, Europe and America", he said.
