    At least four people have been injured after a village controlled by Kurdish forces in northern Syria was shelled by Turkish tanks.

    Turkish tanks shelled the village of Zor Maghar in northern Syria's Aleppo province, which is currently controlled by Kurdish forces; at least four Kurdish militants were wounded, sources said.

    On July 24, Turkey kicked off a military operation against the Islamic State militants in Syria and Kurdish PKK militants in northern Iraq.

    This came after a bombing blamed on the Islamic State killed thirty-two people in the Turkish town of Suruc and after the PKK's military wing released a statement that they had killed two Turkish police officers in the country's southeast provinces.
