Türkiye Says 3 Killed in Rocket Strikes from Kurdish Group in Syria

Türkiye said a Kurdish killed three people in rocket attacks from northern Syria on Monday, in an escalation of cross-border retaliation following Turkish air operations at the weekend and a bomb attack in Istanbul a week ago.


The five rockets hit a school, two houses and a truck in the Karkamis district, near a border gate in Gaziantep province, the governor Davut Gul said, adding six had been wounded. Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu later said three had died.


Broadcaster CNN Turk said the rockets were fired from the Kobani area of Syria, controlled by the People’s Protection Units (YPG).


In response to the attack, Türkiye’s armed forces were retaliating, the defense ministry said in a statement.
