“While the Turkish armed forces demonstrate full compliance with the existing Peace Corridor Implementation Agreement, the terrorists of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) continue their aggression in the area by carrying out 16 rocket and mortar attacks in the last 24 hours,” the ministry said in a statement on the social network Twitter.
