The terrorist YPG/PKK has illegal hideouts across the border in northern Syria – a region partially under opposition control, and partially under terrorist control – where they plan and mount attacks against Türkiye.

Ambulances and security forces were dispatched to the Kilis border region.

Kilis Governor Recep Soyturk later visit the wounded being treated in hospital.

Separately, YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria fired four rockets into Karkamis in the southeastern Gaziantep province.

The rockets hit an empty area, and an investigation of the attack has begun.

The attacks came after Türkiye announced early Sunday that it had launched an air operation against the PKK/YPG terror group in both northern Syria and northern Iraq, where the terrorist group also has hideouts where they plot and mount attacks against Türkiye.

The operation follows last Sunday’s terror attack on Istanbul’s crowded Istiklal Avenue that killed at least six people and left 81 injured.

The Turkish government said the attack was carried out by the terrorist group PKK/YPG.

In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Türkiye, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Türkiye, the US and the EU – has been responsible for the deaths of more than 40,000 people, including women, children and infants. The YPG is the terror group’s Syrian offshoot.
