Kurdish Forces Warn Of All-Out-War Against Turkey If Ankara Dared To Attack The Region

Moreover, two Turkish soldiers were killed after a mortar attack hit the area near a military post in a part of northern Syria where Ankara mounted an operation against Kurdish militants last year, the defence ministry said on Friday.

On October 9, Ankara launched a military operation in northern Syria dubbed Peace Spring, which began with airstrikes on positions of Kurdish units.

The objective is to create a buffer zone in northern Syria where Syrian refugees could return from Turkey, Ankara claims. The buffer zone will also establish a security belt along the Turkish border. The Syrian SANA news agency branded the operation as aggression, while the international community condemned Ankara’s actions.
