BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – The Turkish Armed Forces launched a heavy retaliatory attack on Tuesday after a rocket fired from northern Syria hit the Turkish province of Sanliurfa.

According to the Turkish Ministry of Defense, the rocket fired from Syria hit the Ceylanpinar District, killing one aid worker and wounding a half dozen bystanders.

The Turkish Ministry of Defense later said on Twitter that Turkish forces had responded to the rocket fire and had hit and destroyed seven targets on the Syrian side of the border in self-defense.

They would later accuse the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) of carrying out the rocket attack from the neighboring Al-Hasakah Governorate of northern Syria.

A classic false flag. In all probability Turki backed Jihadis in Al Haska could have also fired the rockets into Turki to draw Turki Army into their fight against the Kurds. Turki backed Jihadis are now at the receiving end of the Wrath of Olives Operations room Kurdish Militia and these Turki backed Jihadis want their masters also to taste the Kurdish medicine.

Whats even worst is without even bothering to check who is behind this Turki just accused Kurds & launched a retaliation into Syria into the Kurdish area.

Poor Turks. Nobody gives them a break. They totally innocently murder hundreds of kurdish ckvilians after thousands of turkish provocations and now ungrateful kurds might have the temerity to strike back?

These kurdish ingrates must be punished.
