During the past 24 hours, the Syrian-Turkish ‎border has witnessed an escalating military ‎tension between the Turkish Army and the ‎PKK-affiliated ’Syria Democratic Forces’ (SDF).‎

The Turkish Chief of Staff has confirmed in a ‎statement targeting the sites of the Assad ‎terrorists and the SDF in response to the fall of ‎two mortar shells on Turkish territory from ‎their areas of control.‎

The statement said that a mortar shell fired ‎Wednesday from the town of Efrin in the ‎Aleppo northwestern countryside, controlled ‎by the SDF, hit a Turkish border sentry in the ‎state of Hatay.‎

The statement added that another shell fired ‎from areas controlled by the Assad terrorists ‎hit another border camp in the same state, ‎adding that the two shells caused physical ‎damage to some parts of the outposts, ‎without causing casualties or injuries.‎

Immediately after carrying out the the mortar ‎attacks, the Turkish artillery stationed in the ‎border areas bombed sites belonging to the ‎Assad regime and the Kurdish SDF. ‎

On the other hand, Kurdish media reported ‎that an exchange of fire took place between ‎the Turkish Army and the SDF near the village ‎of Jattal between the town of Derbasiya and ‎Qarmaniyeh in the countryside of Hasaka.‎

The media office of the SDF claimed ‎that a tank of the Turkish Army had been ‎destroyed after being targeted with an anti-‎tank missile near the town of Derbasiyeh.‎

The developments came two days after ‎Turkish fighter jets launched a series of ‎airstrikes on the headquarters of the SDF in ‎northeastern Syria and the sites of the PKK in ‎Sinjar in northern Iraq, killing 70 Kurdish ‎terrorists in the two regions, according to a ‎statement by the Turkish Army. ‎
