Turkey escalates attacks on Syria’s Kurds amid Iraq operation

Turkey’s military has launched a new series of air strikes on Kurdish-run parts of northeast Syria over the past week amid an ongoing ground and air campaign in northern Iraq, targeting the armed rebels of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), the Hasakah-based pro-Kurdish news agency ANHA reported on Saturday.

At least four artillery shells from the Turkish side of the border bombed Kurdish-majority Syrian city of Kobani on Friday. Two civilians were wounded, according to local reports.

Soldiers of the Syrian army were also targeted by the Turkish army in the village of Zor Maghar, 30 kilometres west of Kobani….


On Wednesday, a Turkish drone strike killed the co-commander of the US-backed militia forces in Kobani and two other female fighters from the Kurdish-led Women’s Protection Units (YPJ).

The Turkish forces launched four other drone strikes on the Syrian side of the border within the past ten days, targeting facilities used by local security forces, spokesman for the Kurdish-led forces Farhad Shami told Al-Monitor.
