Turkey twice attacks Kurdish forces in N. Syria
The Turkish military twice shot at the main Syrian Kurdish PYD force in the town of Tal Abyad Sunday, mostly with machine guns, after the town was included into a Kurdish enclave.
Confirming this Monday night, Turkey’s prime minister Ahmet Davutoglu said: “We said the PYD will not go west of the Euphrates and that we would hit it the moment it did. We hit it twice.” He did not give further details.
