In a phone call with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, Donald Trump has raised concerns that Ankara’s ongoing military operation in neighboring Syria may result in a direct clash between the two NATO allies, RT reports.

''President Trump relayed concerns that escalating violence in Afrin, Syria, risks undercutting our shared goals in Syria,''' according to the White House readout of the conversation. ''He urged Turkey to exercise caution and to avoid any actions that might risk conflict between Turkish and American forces.''

Trump has further urged Turkey to deescalate and ''limit its military actions'' in order to ''avoid civilian casualties and increases to displaced persons and refugees.''
