DAMASCUS, SYRIA (0:30 A.M.) – Over 20 Turkish aerial sorties were conducted over Kurdish-held Syria and Iraq on Tuesday, resulting in the death of at least 18 YPG and Peshmerga militants and causing significant material damage.
In Hasakah province, countless Turkish bombs landed on the border town of Derik in the morning, destroying the headquarters of the Kurdish radio station ‘Voice of Rojava FM’.
Shortly after, US military officials arrived to the city alongside YPG commanders. Washington condemned the Turkish air raids and said they “were not approved” by the Coalition and added it would enquire with Ankara about the controversial airstrikes.

The Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) is heavily backed by the United Stated but is branded a terror group by Turkey, causing tension between the two NATO allies.
