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.

State terrorism is also terrorism. This was a civil broadcaster just like any radio station. If Germany is serious about fighting terrorism as they claim, it should move its Patriot missile brigade, which is stationed in this area along the Turdish border, across the border to fight the real terrorist Erdogoat in case he orders the next murderous air attack on Rojava.

Yep. After illegally smuggling advanced weapons in a foreign country to organized gangs of fanatics. After illegally bombing said country at their will, and illegally deploying troops in there.
