Ankara green lights Iraqi Kurds but no Turkish kurds yet

21 October, 19:13

    (ANSAmed) - BEIRUT, OCTOBER 21 - US-led coalition air strikes against militant group Islamic State (ISIS) resumed on Tuesday in Kobane, while new clashes between Kurdish YPG militants and jihadists were reported on the Syrian border city, human rights watchdog ONDUS said.

    According to local witnesses, an Isis militant reportedly was blown up in a car bombing in Kurdish territory in the eastern part of Kobane.

    Iraqi peshmerga (armed Kurd fighters) have not yet crossed the borders between Turkey and Syria as Ankara had them allowed to do on Monday in order to rescue Kobane Kurds, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu announced, reiterating that the Turkish government, which still does not allow Turkish Kurds to cross the Syrian border, has never wanted the city to fall into the hands of Isis.

    Great Britain announced that its drones stationed in the Middle East will be used in anti-ISIS surveillance and reconnaissance operations in Syria. Downing Street clarified should the government opt for military action in Syria, it will first ask the Westminster Parliament for the go ahead. (ANSAmed).
