Turkish forces bombed a village and an airbase that were recently captured by Kurds, Al Mayadeen TV reported Saturday. Prior to being captured by the YPG, the village and the airbase belonged to al-Nusra Front terrorist organization.
On Saturday, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu claimed Turkish forces shelled Kurds' positions in northern Syria as a retaliatory measure within rules of engagement. Syria's Foreign Ministry branded the shelling as direct support of the terrorists on Sunday.
NTV channel reported citing a military source earlier in the day that Turkish forces had continued to shell YPG positions in Syria killing two Kurdish fighters.
US Vice President Joe Biden in a conversation with Davutoglu called for cessation of Turkish artillery strikes in northern Syria.
Ankara claims that Syrian Kurds have links to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), a militant group fighting for Kurdish independence from Turkey.
