Turkish Jets Kill 160 to 200 Syrian Kurdish Militants in Air Strikes

pppTurkish forces struck 18 Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) targets Wednesday night.

Turkish jets and artillery are still firing on Syrian SDF and Kurdish positions.

Turkish press had reported that the military claimed to have killed between 160 and 200 fighters.

The Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) reported on Twitter that Turkish planes had carried out at least 14 airstrikes, bombing positions of the Jaish al-Thuwar, a member of the SDF, near the border of Efrin, the western-most canton of the Rojava, the self-autonomous region of northern Syria.

The reports were corroborated by pro-Turkish media on Thursday morning. Yeni Safak reported that Turkey had targeted 18 “PYD/PKK” positions as part of its Euphrates Shield operation in northwestern Syria.

The PYD is the Democratic Union Party. Turkey claims the PYD is aligned with the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which it has named as a terrorist organization.

The pro-Turkish outlet reported that the attack took place in Ma’arat Umm Hawsh, a Kurdish village in the northern Aleppo region where the Euphrates Shield operation is taking place.

According to the Turkish military, the incident took place between 9:11 pm an 11:59 pm local time.
