Turkish Ministry of Defense press-secretary Tanju Bilgic stated that state’s armed forces again have shelled Kurdish positions of the self-defense forces on the north of Syria.
“This morning was occurred an attack on our checkpoint in the province of Hatay. According to the data, the shelling was conducted from the Syrian kurdish democratic union party’s side. Our side has opened the return fire”, – said Bilgic.
We recall that earlier the Turkish artillery have shelled the soldiers of the Kurdish self-defense forces in the Minneh airbase. Turkish PM Ahmed Davutoglu has called those actions as retaliatory in connection with the threat to the Turkish border from the SKDU party side and demanded them to leave their positions north from Aleppo, but Salih Muslim refuse to do that.
