Russian jets bomb US-backed Kurdish enclave

DEBKAfile’s intelligence and military sources disclose that the aerial bombardment Wednesday of the pro-US Kurdish enclave Hassake and Kurdish positions in Asayish in northeastern Syria, was conducted by Russian jets. Many casualties were reported by the Kurdish Arab militia which is armed and trained by the US. The Russian attack came on the heels of word that the United States has begun evacuating its nuclear arsenal from the Turkish air base of Incirlik, as DEBKAfile reported earlier.
