[AlAhram] |Ottoman Turkish forces killed a Kurdish YPG krazed killer who fired into The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire....
from Syria, a
Ottoman Turkish security source said on Wednesday, the most recent cross-border clash between Turkey and Kurdish hard boyz east of the Euphrates River.
The krazed killer had fired from Syria's Ras al-Ayn region into Turkey's Sanliurfa province, the source said.
Turkey considers the YPG militia a terrorist organization and an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which has waged an insurgency against Turkey since 1984.
Turkey's military has carried out two incursions into Syria against the YPG militia, both focusing on its presence to the west of the Euphrates River.
President Tayyip Erdogan has signaled an impending operation against YPG forces the east of the river, delivering last month what he said was his "final warning" to those he said endangered Turkey's southern border with Syria.
The YPG spearheads the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces in the fight against Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling
Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not
in Syria. Washington's support for the militia has infuriated Ankara.
Ottoman Turkish forces last month bombarded YPG positions near Ayn al-Arab, Turkey's Anadolu news agency reported. It killed four Kurdish hard boyz last week in a separate cross-border clash in the same region, broadcaster TRT reported.
