The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the Turkish army targeted positions held by Kurdish fighters in northern Syria, killing two of them. The shelling hit an air base and other positions recently recaptured from terrorists in the area. Ankara first opened fire into northern Syria on Saturday. Turkey has warned the Syrian Kurdish YPG to pull out from areas it has captured from ISIL in northern Aleppo province. Davutoglu also confirmed that Turkish forces struck Kurdish fighters who drove militants from Manq airbase in A’zaz near the Turkish border. Turkey is becoming increasingly anxious by Syrian army and Kurdish advances against the ISIL in Aleppo province. Ankara is widely believed to have backed the group in Syrian and Iraqi territory.
