A senior military official of the PKK, Duran Kalkan, said the Kurdish militant group was “ready to do anything” to defend Rojava, a region in northern Syria controlled by Kurdish factions.

In the statement released on Monday evening, Kalkan insisted the PKK would “deploy more forces to Rojava” if the Turkish Army would not immediately stop its attacks on the YPG.

This comes amid a large-scale Turkish-backed offensive against ISIS and Kurdish factions in northeastern Aleppo.

PKK insurgents operate primarily in Turkey; however, PKK fighters are known to intermingle with the YPG whom is considered a close ally of the PKK.

Which confirms what many have been saying that the YPG are a terrorist group associated with the PKK.

By “many” I presume you’re referring to Turkish ISIS supporters. I suppose democracy and human rights must feel like “terrorism” to an islamist.

They’d better consider wrecking serious havoc in Turkey, not targeting militaries but AKP members and families then doing attacks which make huge money losses : if any attack makes at least 100M€ damages, then it really strikes where it hurts : at the purse! i.e. a Boeing E-7A Wedgetail cost is at least 400M$…
