Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan issued a stern warning to Europeans on Thursday.

In a defiant address to lawmakers from his party on Thursday, the Turkish President said he would continue the operation in northern Syria, adding that if Europe criticizes his military moves, he would open the flood gates and allow 3.6 million Syrian refugees to travel onwards. 

Erdogan also claimed that so far 109 "terrorists" have been neutralized in northern Syria since "Operation Peace Spring" began Wednesday.

CNN's Clarissa Ward, reporting from northern Syria, said: "He is making it very, very clear that he is not going to tolerate any criticism from the international community despite the bloodshed, and despite real questions about where this military operation ends and how many more civilians will die."
