Turkey Kills 160 to 200 Syrian Kurdish Militants in Airstrikes

Turkish jets carried out 26 airstrikes on 18 Syrian Kurdish YPG militant targets in northern Syria and killed 160 to 200 militants, said the Turkish army in a statement on Thursday.
The army said its jets pounded areas recently captured by the YPG forces late on Wednesday, and destroyed nine buildings, one armoured vehicle and four other vehicles that belonged to the Kurdish YPG militia.
Turkey, a main backer of the insurgency against President Bashar al-Assad, entered the Syrian conflict in August, using its armour and air power to help Free Syrian Army rebel groups take territory near the border held by Islamic State.
