After 9/11 World Trade Center terror attacks a large scale operation was conducted by US and its allies against Afghanistan. After the battle was won some thought the main aim was achieved but as the time passed by it was seen that destroying an authority and replacing nothing was not an effective solution. The ISAF operation has become an impasse for the NATO forces. The aim of this study is to discuss the role of Turkey in ISAF as a peacekeeping force. Among the many participants of ISAF mission Turkey has a significant role as the only NATO member with a Muslim majority. Thanks to her shared values and past with Afghan people and the effective strategy of Turkish armed forces Turkey has proved to be the most successful peacekeeping force in Afghanistan. Keywords: NATO, ISAF, Turkey, Peacekeeping, War on Terror.
