Turkey continues shelling Kurdish regions in Syria: Group



Despite international outcries, Turkey has shelled Kurdish regions in northern Syria for the third day, saying it will not allow Kurds to take control of the Syrian border town of A’zaz.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Monday that Turkish forces shelled a road to the Tal Rif’at town as well as a region near A’zaz. Turkey had targeted the same areas over the weekend.

“We will not let A’zaz fall,” said Turkish Prime Minister Ahmed Davutoglu, adding, Kurds will not be able to cross to the west of the Euphrates (River) and east of Afrin.”
