Al-Baghdadi's child captured, Erdogan says

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said neither Russia nor the U.S. fulfilled their part of the deal over the withdrawal of PKK's Syrian offshoot People's Protection Units (YPG) terrorists from northern Syria, as he highlighted Turkey's determined fight against terrorism and announced the capture of slain Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's child, ONA reports citing Daily Sabah.

Speaking at a news conference ahead of his departure for an official visit to Hungary, Erdoğan said Turkey is waging a determined fight against terrorism.

He noted that Turkey has prohibited the entry of around 76,000 suspected Daesh terrorists.

Erdoğan also slammed sports administrations for discriminating against Turkish athletes, who are "under systematic attack regarding their military salute."

"We reject UEFA's discriminatory attitude against our football players," Erdoğan said.
