US alarm as Turkey warns Syrian Kurd militia of more strikes

A Turkish boy waves to Turkish tank convoy driving into Syria from the border city of Karkamis in the southern region of Gaziantep, on August 26, 2016Turkey warned Monday it would carry out more strikes on a Syrian Kurdish militia if it failed to retreat beyond the Euphrates River, as Washington voiced alarm over weekend clashes. Turkish forces pressed on with a two-pronged operation inside Syria against Islamic State (IS) jihadists and the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), shelling over a dozen targets. The strikes against the YPG are hugely sensitive as the outfit — seen as a terror group by Ankara — is allied with Turkey’s NATO partner, the United States, in the fight against IS in Syria.
