Turkey strikes at SDF in northeast Syria

A spokesperson for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) told Kurdish media on Wednesday that Turkish air force and artillery have begun shelling the Kurdish-dominated town of Serekaniye and its surroundings in Syria's northeast.

The SDF is militarily led by the mostly-Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG), which Ankara considers a terrorist organization.

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced earlier in the day that his country's military, together with the Syrian National Army, started "Operation Peace Spring" in northern Syria.
