The Turkish Armed Forces have carried out strikes against seven positions of the Kurdish troops of the Self-Defense Forces in Syria's Afrin, Haberturk TV reported.
According to the channel, the gun fire was opened from the bordering Turkish province of Hatay. The Kurdish units fired several shells over Turkey’s territory in return, the channel reported.
Ankara does not rule out the possibility of carrying out an operation against Kurds from the Democratic Union Party and the Self-Defense Forces which it regards as a Syrian branch of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, an organization that is recognized as terrorist in Turkey, TASS reported.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier that "the operation in Afrin against the terror forces may start any moment."
