Alleged Turkish Airstrike Hits Vehicle in Kobani

ERBIL — A vehicle was targeted by an alleged Turkish drone attack in Kobani, in north of Syria, on Wednesday, reportedly leaving casualties.

The vehicle was reportedly targeted while it was in front of the local Justice Council, with the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) saying that a fighter and a driver were killed in the attack.

This comes as Turkey has lately intensified its military attacks in northeast of Syria where the Kurdish forces are present, viewed by Ankara as an "extension" of the Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK) which is designated as a "terrorist organization" by the country.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday requested a two-year-long authorisation from the parliament for the country's military operations in Iraq and Syria against the PKK and the People’s Protection Units (YPG).

"The continued existence of the PKK and ISIL elements in Iraq, attempts against ethnic-based separatism, and directs threats to regional peace, stability and the security of our country. Terrorist organizations, especially PKK/PYD-YPG and ISIL, continue their presence in Syria in the areas adjacent to our border, continuing their actions against our country, our national security and civilians," the motion said.

Erdogan had recently vowed to respond to an attack allegedly conducted by the YPG fighters in north of Syria where two Turkish police officers were killed.
