Turkey Has Blamed the Kurds for Tensions Over the Past 24 Hours
ANKARA, (BM) – According to the Turkish Ministry of Defense, Kurds in northern Syria have violated the ceasefire in the last 24 hours by 16 times, BulgarianMilitary.com has learned, quoting FOCUS News Agency.
“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.
On October 9, Turkey launched a peace-of-arms operation against the Kurdish SDF, which Ankara considers a terrorist organization, despite their involvement in a campaign led by the United States against an Islamic State in northern Syria.
A ceasefire agreement with Russia was later signed, according to which their forces would patrol the border between Turkey and Syria.
“We are complying with all agreements to protect our people from killings and evictions,” Kurdish forces chief Mazlum Kobani said earlier, blaming the Turkish forces and their allies for violations of the ceasefire.
