50 Turkish tanks in Syrian city of Jarablus: Head of Kurdish group
The head of a Kurdish group in Syria says about 50 Turkish tanks have been deployed to northern Syria, where the Turkish military earlier entered in an operation against Kurds and the Daesh terrorist group.
Elham Ahmad, the co-president of the Syrian Democratic Council, told RT on Sunday that 50 Turkish tanks had been deployed, under aerial cover by Turkish fighter jets, to the city of Jarablus in northern Syria.
The Turkish military forces entered Jarablus on August 24. They then joined anti-Damascus militants to gain control of the Syrian city from Daesh and Kurds, who were themselves fighting the terrorist group.
Syria has been the scene of a foreign-backed crisis since March 2011
