The Turkish army repeatedly bombed the Kurdish regions of northern Syria and Iraq between 20 and 22 November. “89 terrorist nests have been destroyed”, applauded Monday the Islamo-nationalist daily Yeni Safak, in reference to the targets of these strikes, namely the guerrillas of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).
Ankara accuses him, as well as the Arab-Kurdish forces of the Syrian Democratic Forces, close to the PKK, of being responsible for the attack which recently plunged Istanbul into mourning. On 13 November, a bomb set off in a thoroughfare in the Istanbul district of Taksim left 6 dead and 81 injured among passers-by.
This Tuesday, says AFP, a Turkish drone would have bombed in Syria a joint base of Kurdish forces and the international anti-jihadist coalition led by the United States, according to Kurdish forces and an NGO. Two Kurdish fighters were reportedly killed.
A ground offensive soon?
