BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:40 P.M.) – The Turkish Army killed a member of the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) in the northwestern countryside of the Al-Hasakah Governorate on Wednesday, the Reuters News Agency reported.
According to the Reuters report, the Turkish military killed the YPG fighter after he allegedly fired shots across the border towards Turkey’s Sanliurfa province.
The YPG has yet to comment on these claims by Reuters.
Earlier today, the Turkish military attacked the two border-cities of Tal Al-Abyad (Raqqa) and Ras Al-‘Ayn (Hasakah).
These attacks by the Turkish military come just days after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that his nation’s military would be launching a large-scale attack east of the Euphrates River.
