11 YPG terrorists killed after launching attack on Turkish military post

At least 11 terrorists of PKK's Syrian wing, the Democratic Union Party (PYD) were killed on Friday after the group attacked a military border station in southeastern Turkey, the military said in a statement.

The YPG terrorists launched a mortar attack on a border station in the Ceylanpınar district of Şanlıurfa province. Turkish soldiers immediately retaliated to the attack.

A vehicle carrying the terrorists was also destroyed in the attack, the military added.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU and Turkey also considers its Syrian affiliate the PKK/PYD a terror group. However, the U.S. regards the latter as a key ally in the fight against Daesh in Syria.

Turkey has repeatedly called for an end to U.S. support for the PKK/PYD terror groups.
