Turkish Air Strikes On Syria: Turkish airstrikes targeted several cities in northern Syria including the city of Kobane late on Saturday. This information was given by the Kurdish-led army present there and a monitoring group based in Britain. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least six members of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and six pro-government soldiers were killed in the attacks. There is also information about dozens of injuries.
Two villages affected
The Kurdish-led army based in Syria said that internally displaced people lived in at least two villages affected by the attack. It also includes the eastern countryside around Kobane, also known as Ain al-Arab.
The attacks come days after the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) was blamed for last Sunday’s deadly bombing in central Istanbul, according to media reports. Turkey said on Tuesday it planned to pursue targets in northern Syria after completing cross-border operations against the group.
What did the SDF spokesperson say?
Syrian Democratic Forces spokesman Farhad Shami tweeted, "#Kobane, the city that defeated ISIS, was bombed by Turkish captured aircraft." The PKK and the SDF have denied any involvement in the Istanbul attack, which killed six people and injured 80.
