Turkey ratchets up Syria offensive on border


Turkish warplanes and artillery struck targets held by the Kurdish YPG militia in north Syria on Sunday (August 28), security sources said, as Turkey pressed on with a cross-border campaign launched last week with its Syrian rebel allies.

There was no immediate comment from the YPG militia, but forces aligned with the Kurdish group had said on Saturday that no Kurdish militia had been in areas being targeted by Turkish troops or its allies.

Turkey, which has been battling Kurdish insurgents on its own soil, sent soldiers, tanks and other military hardware into Syria last week in support of Syrian rebel allies and seized the Syrian frontier town of Jarablus from Islamic State.
