Turkey has accidentally bombed USA special forces in Syria

Open source

It said the 148 fighters of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) as well as from the Turkey-backed rebels and Turkish soldiers have been killed since Wednesday.

The civilian death toll resulting from Turkey's offensive into northern Syria has risen to 30, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on October 12.

Turkey has said that pact was never implemented.

The Turkish assault has raised alarm about its humanitarian fall-out.

Turkey said its military and allied Syrian rebels had captured the town centre, but the Kurdish-led SDF forces denied it had fallen.

Turkey on Wednesday launched an offensive in northern Syria targeting the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, a key USA ally in the five-year battle to crush the Islamic State group.

The ministry provided the latest figure on Twitter amid Turkey's Operation Peace Spring, which it said continued successfully throughout the night. The incursion has focused on an area 60 miles to the west of Kobane, but USA officials believe Turkey has long-term aspirations to control a much larger swath of Syria.

US Special Forces have been "mistakenly" bombed by Turkey in the northern Syrian town of Kobani.

The Syrian Democratic Forces, or SDF, called on the United States to carry out its "moral responsibilities" and close northern Syrian airspace to Turkish warplanes.

"Now the SDF's attack has started and there are very fierce clashes", Qamishlo told Reuters.

Turkey views the United States' support of the Kurds and YPG as "an ill-conceived policy to arm one terrorist group to fight another", Aybet said.

Medvedev reaches sixth final in a row to set up Zverev clash
Nadal, the World No 2 and victor over Medvedev at Flushing Meadows, is not in Shanghai because of a wrist injury. Medvedev has lost to Zverev all four times they have played, though none of the contests took place this year.

Navy Capt. Brook DeWalt, a Pentagon spokesman, said in a statement that the US troops "came under artillery fire" but were unharmed and that there was an explosion.

Ankara considers the YPG a "terrorist" offshoot of Kurdish rebels who have been fighting an insurgency against the Turkish state for three decades.

The Arab League's meeting came as Turkey's offensive against Syrian Kurdish fighters entered its fourth day.

Thomas McClure, a researcher at Rojava Information Center based in Qamishli, Syria, confirmed the escape to The Epoch Times in a telephone call.

Erdogan has dismissed mounting worldwide condemnation of the operation and said on Friday evening that Turkey "will not stop it, no matter what anyone says".

Ankara says its forces' mission is to establish a safe zone run by its mainly Arab Syrian allies in which some of the 3.6 million mostly Arab refugees from Syria can be rehoused. Erdogan threatened to send them to Europe if the European Union did not back his assault.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights announced on Saturday that four civilians were killed in Tal Abyad when an airstrike hit the auto in which they were fleeing the fighting, while another three were shot dead by snipers around the border town.

As self-defense, the terrorists positions were targeted, Akar said.

A White House statement announcing the withdrawal of US troops prior to the Turkish offensive said that Turkey would now become responsible for all ISIS fighters in the region-a suggestion that was widely criticized.

A map showing Turkey's suggested operation in Syria, is placed to be used for a TV broadcast by journalists in Akcakale, Sanliurfa province, southeastern Turkey. "There is absolutely no shooting of the US and the Coalition".
