Turkey killed 10 Kurdish militants in Syria’s Tel Rifaat
region on Sunday in retaliation for an attack that killed a Turkish soldier,
the Turkish Defense Ministry said on Tuesday.
Turkey says the Kurdish YPG militia in Syria is part of the PKK militant group, which it designates a terrorist group and which it has been fighting for more than 30 years.
The United Nations warned on Monday that up to 2 million refugees could flee to Turkey if fighting intensifies in northwestern Syria as aid funds run dangerously low.
