Turkish warplanes have struck the Syrian affiliate of the PKK terrorist organization YPG, near the Syrian town of Jarablus on Saturday.

An ammunition depot and a command post was destroyed in the airstrikes which were launched at 10:00 a.m. local time, 8 kilometres south of Jarablus, according to military sources.

Meanwhile, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) has reportedly cleared two villages 60 km west of Jarablus off of Daesh terrorists.

Despite consistent U.S. calls to retreat, PYD units were moving to the east of the Euphrates river, and the group continued its offenses amid the conflict between Turkish-backed moderate opposition forces and Daesh terrorists.

The YPG — the Syrian affiliate of the terrorist PKK — has been expanding its dominance west of the Euphrates River since late December, reinforcing its presence in the region using the fight against Daesh as a pretext.
