BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – The Turkish Army launched a heavy attack against a group of fighters from the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) in the northern countryside of the Aleppo.

According to reports from northern Aleppo, the Turkish Army launched several artillery shells towards the YPG’s positions inside the town of Sheikh Issa.

The Turkish Army attack appeared to be unprovoked as the YPG had not launched any strikes against them or their rebel allies in the Aleppo and Raqqa countrysides.

The fact they are Kurds and alive is already seen as a provocation by the “Sultan”

As reported a few shells becoming a major attack? This is fake news, a few shells is a daily skirmish, not a major attack. Poor and inflaming reporting. Pity.
